Where should we live?
We're hoping to get Savannah as our next duty station. I go back and forth between wanting to live on base or off. They've updated all the housing on base and from what I see in pictures and what I hear they are beautiful homes. I keep weighing the pros and cons and can't figure out what we should do. If we live on base we don't really get an option of what we get like we would off base and we won't get the extra bah we could pocket if we found a place to live in that's under our BAH rate but all utilities would be included which would be a HUGE help for us. Also, DH will definitely be getting deployed while he's stationed there and I like the safety that living on base would provide for me since we don't have kids and it will be just me at home while he's gone. However, Savannah is only 2 hours from where I grew up so I know I'll have lots of friends and family coming to visit and I don't want it to be a hassle for them everytime they want to get on base. Especially, if we host holidays with my family like I would like to do. What do you ladies think?
