Yes, I'm sure you hear it all the time, "I'm PCSing to Ft. Riley". Well, I am. My name is Rachael, I am dual Army, with a monster 2- year old named Emma and due with monster #2, Jenner in June. My husband is a medic and I'm Preventive Medicine, so Medical all around.
I've read through the posts and everything that I've heard about Riley, seems to be true. It's a hole. Which doesn't make me feel any better. But! Since when does the Army give you choices?! Never. So, I might as well get some inside info on the place. I read that there isn't anywhere fun to go. Got that. BUT! I will most likely be living off- post because I hate on- post housing at military posts and I heard the waiting list is a nightmare there. So, I need you ladies' help. I need to know the areas to stay away from, which places are really nice, best places for childcare (whether it's the CDC or private day cares). I need the scoop. This isn't my first duty station, so I'm not naive and ignorant to all the crap that is PCSing. I am currently stationed in D.C., so I know all about finding places that are out of bad areas. So, let me know! My husband will be coming in October, so I want to have the area all scouted out, by then. HELPPPPPP!!!!!!! I can't do it without you ladies. Please let me know. I can't send my husband ahead of me to find a place to live and a place to put my babies for daycare, without me, having the scoop. I just don't trust him like that.
I'm also a really god person to talk to. I'm real, I don't let much get to me, and I b*tch, A LOT. Especially about my husband. So, keep in touch and I'll see you guys soon!!!!
