Hello all! I just got word from my husband we are packing up and moving to Little Creek, VA! Won't happen for a few more months. We currently live in San Diego and were desperately hoping to stay put but the Navy had other plans for us! Well I would like to hear from anyone out there about Little Creek. Husband is a CTN so he will work at the Joint Expeditionary-Little Creek/Fort Story.
Housing and school info would be most helpful. What is the best district/elementary schools in the area? Is military housing decent? Do they take all the BHA? Is it a flat rate or do we cover utilities? Here in SD we live a little further away from base and our particular housing doesn't take all our BHA and we don't pay utilities expect internet. Of course SD is crazy expensive so we get a decent amount, but trust me we need it! We lived in apartments when we first moved here and a 2 BR was 1900 a month plus all utilities! We ended up moving into housing here in SD and love it, but I am not sure if it's the same in VA. My husband being CTN he doesn't exactly have a lot of options as far as bases go which is why we have to move.
Well I am sad because I just started a job and I hate to leave it so soon! Plus, San Diego is amazing! There is so much to do over here and the weather...well it's awesome all the time! But as long as i've got my family all is good in the world :)
Thanks for your help and suggestions! I really appreciate it!
