My husband is in the Air Force and stationed at Langley in Virginia. The base housing here is HORRIBLE! The houses are old and tiny and decrepit looking. I don't understand how the military make it's families live in those conditions! I believe they're in the process of tearing them down and rebuilding them, but all I've seen so far is just the tearing down. Needless to say, we live off base. Our apartment is so much nicer than the base housing. I think it's bigger, too. This is our first duty station, and I was just wondering if all the base housing was like this. The area here isn't bad, so in my opinion it's way better to live off base. But I can understand a base in another area might not be that great so living on base would be better. We've also been trying to get orders for years now with no luck, we've been at Langely for almost 6 years! Are there any nice Air Force bases stateside anyone would recommend? How is the area and the base housing?
