I have many #friends who are #overseas and most LOVE their #living arrangements; whether it’s on base #housing or not.
If you want to live among the locals and be a real life “When In Rome…” advocate, then living off base is ideal (if it’s an option).
However, there’s nothing stopping you from living in #military housing and still #exploring your new surroundings! It’s the best of both worlds; having a built-in #community in a new location.

“I felt much safer on base, especially during #deployments. Our maintenance guys took care of any #home issues and I live very close to my work at a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDea) #School. I cried when we left, because we enjoyed our time there so much.”
