Tell Us About
Housing: On Post: People say it's great, lucky you. However our house on post sucked. The kitchen was a tiny hall with a laundry room crammed into it. Sucky house all together. There are however tons of new houses that were built since we left so fingers crossed for you.
Housing: Off Post: We did actually live off post when we first moved there. We rented a house on the east side in a quiet neighborhood. I would have lived there the whole time we were stationed there but we popped out baby number 3 and were in desperate need of a 4 bedroom. That and our sewer exploded into our master bedroom... For those with high school kids I would recommend living off post on the east side.
Rate the Commissary and Exchange: The commissary was a good size from what I can recall. The PX? I honestly am not a big PX shopper, they start to run together after a while. So I'm gonna say the same as most?? Sounds about right.
School System: Off post school was okay. I loved my sons kindergarten teacher. On post not so much. I wasn't a fan of the school, or the teachers.
Things to do in the area:............................................
Positive things about this duty station:Every post is what you make of it. I must have not been trying to hard.
Negative: Ghetto town, ghetto people.
Hospital & Clinics: I always had a good experience with the hospital on post. I gave birth to my youngest there, and I have no complaints. I loved his pediatrician, she was there from the time he was born till me moved away. I would have taken her with me if I could.
Would you choose to go back? Not in a million years!!
