Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

rarely, and no.

you'll have to chase the expedite yerself.

Are you on a PC? I ask, because there's a Military-focused sub-forum.

it's got to go into the USCIS office ! Did you apply for AOS yet? Yes? No?

If no, include a cover letter requesting military expedite, show the PCS orders with your name on them.

If Yes, call into USCIS , use a telephone today, and get an ISO Human, a Tier 2 Human, and tell the Tier 2 Human you want to facilitate a Military Expedite, asking for the fax # to send the docs to.

There's a bit more to it, than this, but hey !

no i havent applied yet. how many months will this take? he supposed to leave lastweek of febryary

AoS can take upwards of 4 months to process. But my concern is your timeline in your post. You arrived August 15th, married the 31st, It is now 01/06. There is a 90 day window for you to marry and file papers, that starts upon arrival. That means you should have filed around November 15th, You are 2 months past due on your filing. Unless you were an IR1/CR1 applicant.

So basically, first thing i have to do is file AOS and what will make it different from the others is that i will put a cover letter requesting them to expedite it? I thought there is another way if he need to go to the pcs soon.

You will file as normal, but you will also make a request to expedite. Here is the USCIS page about Expedited requests. http://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume1-PartA-Chapter12.html

A. Expedite Criteria​ [1]​
USCIS may expedite a​ petition or application if it meets one or more of the following criteria:​
​
•Severe financial loss to company or ​person​;​
​
•Emergency situation;​ [2] 
​
•Humanitarian reasons;​ [3] 
​
•Nonprofit organization whose request is in furtherance of the cultural and social interests of the United States​;​ [4] 
​
•Department of Defense or ​n​ational ​i​nterest ​s​ituation;​ [5] 
​
•USCIS error; or​
​
•Compelling interest of USCIS.​
C. Making an Expedite Request ​​
To make a request to expedite the processing of a domestically filed application or petition, the customer should contact the ​National Customer Service Center ​(​NCSC​)​ ​at 1-800-375-5283​. ​The NCSC forward​s​ ​the Service Request​ ​to the office with jurisdiction over the application or petition​.​
​
Customers may also visit a local office by scheduling an InfoPass appointment or writing a letter to the ​field office​ or ​s​ervice ​c​enter. Applicants or petitioners overseas should submit their requests directly to the USCIS office ​with​ jurisdiction over their applications or petitions​;​ contact information ​for overseas USCIS offices is ​provided on the ​USCIS​ ​website.​
​
Approval of such requests is discretionary and USCIS reserves the right to request documentation supporting the request to expedite an application or petition.​

Sorry, there is no window to file the papers,

but there is a window in which to get married.
