Are there any army wives on here that are located in Ft. Polk?
I was for four years and can connect you to moms still there if you'd like.
Where are you from in Texas? I was raised in Dallas and am in El Paso (bliss) now.
I think we're moving there in the Spring. What should we be looking out for in terms of off-post housing and schools for our kids (15,13,9)?
What do you like and dislike?
We are PCSing to Polk too in June/July time frame. I am originally from the area and we are excited! :) We are going to live on post, if we can, but the wait is long. I've been eying AHRN for rentals but seems expensive. We'll probably go for some place in Rosepine if we have to live off post.
From my understanding about housing is, people say it is not worth the BAH. But the BAH is not enough to cover off post so it's the best value. So in turn, I guess it is worth the BAH. :-/ I have also been told do not be fooled by the outside; most of the interiors have been completely renovated. We did live in base housing one time when we were stationed there in 2003-2005. It was completely renovated and hugemoungus on the inside (3 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, llving room, dining room, den, laundry room, & covered patio). So I hope it's okay.
We are coming from Fort Bragg. We still have to sell our house but are thinking about just renting it so we can get move faster, get settled before school starts in the fall.
