“Should we live on base or off base?”
It’s an age old debate that every #military #spouse will have. Not just once, but numerous times, throughout their military time in #service, writes
The truth is there is no One Size Fits All answer.
What works for you may not work for your #MilSpo #BFF (that’s short for “Military Spouse”). Heck, what works for you at Duty Station #1, may be completely opposite of what works for you a Duty Station #2, #3 and #4.
So what things should you consider when deciding which is best for your family? Here are some thoughts from military spouses!

“When we were active duty, living on post was not even an option we considered. #Hubby preferred to not live where he worked.”
Jenn, MilSpo- 12 yrs;
“This is the first time we’ve chosen to live off base. We live in a #community mixed with military and #civilian and I have enjoyed getting to know my civilian #neighbors! I get a glimpse into their lives and get to interact with #spouses that have different #careers and #pursuits. We definitely get MORE for our money off base.”
