Here is the current 3 location options that they have given us that we could even do, or that my dh doesnt hate the idea of going to, Fort Sam, Fort Carson, or Fort McClellan.

I need opinions, as I said  in another post he probably needs to put something in his contract so theres not a possibility he will get stationed overseas. Oh a big question for me is how are the elementary schools? Oh and I really hate the winter, so should we count out Colorado?

I know zero about any of these duty stations so all your imput would be very much appreciated!

Thanks Ladies! 



EDIT* So it looks like dh prefers Fort Sam, he finally got a detailed email sent to me. Guess that will be our next home in a year! Of course it is the military something could change. Now I gotta start a new post to get all the details!

 Fort Carson!  Even though they have real winters they also have a beautiful fall, spring and summer. I want to retire in Colorado.  I don't know any details about the base though, I've only been there to visit family.

Yes! CO is awesome, though I may be biased, lol. I also don't have too many details about post, because my husband is in the Guard, but he does drills and AT there.

I said for Carson.
I hate Texas. And I live in Alabama right now at Fort Benning. We are right in the border, but yeah......
Plus, we are going to Carson in October and I need friends.

I don't know about any of them. But I wouldn't count out CO as Ft Carson is in the southern part and CO is a different winter than others, it is dry!

We are at Carson and winter this past year wasn't too bad. I love it here. We were at ft Sam too. Traffic is awful and I didn't like the weather, but there is a lot to do there! But yeah I am for Carson.

I said Colorado, I'm a Broncos fan, no other reason. Though Ft Sam is really cool, I went there for my sister's AIT graduation and I love San Antonio. :-)

Carson for sure! My brother is stationed there and when I went for a week it was awesome. That's my husbands next station of choice!
