It is hot, humid and the bugs suck. Hinesville is ghetto and there isn't much around it. Savannah is ok, but I got bored of it after a few months. I had good experiences at Winn. My provider was nice and I didn't have ridiculous wait times. We lived in Richmond Hill. It is a nice little town with good schools. There is a Winn clinic in RH now. It opened right after we moved so I don't know how it is.

My BFF is there, but I can't speak first hand. She seems to enjoy it very much but sold her house and moved on post because she said its extremely hard there to network off post, a problem she didn't have at our last post. She also said its hot. Her husband is gone allllllll the time, but sometimes posts are good for that and as a whole really love that training, and sometimes thats just MOS related. I am not sure which her problem is. Housing is really cute, I really like her house. Oh and she often talks about local events/fairs and exploring the city and different things. So there seems to be ample things to do. If you have any specific questions, I would be happy to ask her.

Thank you. If we decide to choose this I will definitely get in touch. I can't say I care much about networking but more about schools, ect. My DH will be gone all the time because he is in thw final phase of the PA program.

If you care about schools don't live in Hinesville or on post. RH has the best schools in the area. I'm sure the elem schools in the H'ville area are ok, but my friend's dh is a HS teacher at ine of the H'ville schools and he said he wouldn't send his kids to school where he teaches.
