“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 Kia Young​.

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!

Lara, MilSpo-13 yrs;

“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.”
