Reasoning for both?

Carson gets snow. The weather there is crazy.



We didn't have kids when we lived there but I think the schools are good/decent.

My friend loved Ft. Lewis and said if she could go back she would. There was tons of things to do and she just loved it.

Were I live we get tons of snow. I'm used to it. I live in a small town and prefer to be on the outskirts. I don't like busy places that are heavily populated.

Fort Carson is at the edge of the Springs. Colorado Springs is spread so far out that it feels like a small town. I wouldn't mind moving back there but my family's so far away.



At least here I have my sister and BIL. In Colorado it was my in-laws.

Best: Ft Campbell- there is so much close by. Lots to do for free or affordable.
Worst:Ft Leonard Wood. There is nothing there! It sucks so bad. Not to mention its a tradoc post.

Ft. Wood isn't known as Fort Lost in the Woods for nothing. :lol: My dad was stationed there and I grew up not far from there.

My husband loves Ft Stewart. He had a wife and child while stationed there. It's so close to the beach and Savannah and we LOVE Savannah!

That's funny I despise Ft Campbell and it was #1 on a list of top 10 most hated bases by active army members

Worst: Fort Wainwright, Alaska.
Best: Not sure, haven't experienced them all but I hear good things about Germany.

My mom loved Hawaii (Schofield Barracks) and Germany (Berlin). I loved West Point and Fort Carson. My mom hated Fort Polk.

*not an army family* but my brother and his wife as well as all my close friends hate/hated Ft. Bragg. That is the best I see complained about the most, as well as Ft Hood.
