    Thanks what about this one: The pizza place that used to be on the corner has moved four blocks east.

    I think it should actually be: Students, whose parents are in the military, often move around a lot. The reason being the phrase "whose parents are in the military" qualifies which students we are talking about.

    The same applies for the second sentence: The pizza place, that used to be on the corner, has moved four blocks east.

    You'll not both sentences can exist without the part that is in the comma. The sentence can be "The pizza place has moved four blocks east." The part "that use to be on the corner" tells us which pizza place has moved.
