Hi from an Air Force brat, Air Force vet, and 20+ year Army wife. Let us know where you wind up! I loved our Virginia assignments and we would have considered retirement there except it is tax aitch ee double hockey-sticks. If you're in the Norfolk area check out Fort Monroe, where I lived for a few years. Beautiful old fort with walls and a moat and the works.

Thanks Claire. I was in the Air Force. I did 4 years but then realized I was missing out too much with my family.

Welcome!

Not too much "Navy" in Chicago. We have a big lake but hardly any battles on it.

Take advantage of the beautiful parks in your area!! I would visit every weekend if I could.

Mystie - I'm glad you found us. We are the family you haven't shared with. ;-)
