I have a question. ..for living on base (army) is there a limit on how many pets you can have. I know it probably depends on the base. Also about dogs would german shepherds be allowed? I know there are some restrictions according to what I've googled.

Depends on the base and community within the base. Some are equipped for pets others not. Out here the max is 2

Have any of you reenlisted into another branch after being out for a few years? Any experience with Navy or Navy Reserves?

We live on base and love it. Never had any drama. Can have 2 pets. I like how close we are with our neighbors and trust them. We are at Pendleton.

Some base housing has comparison graphs on their websites. Here in So Cal depending on the size of your family and how much space you want and need its cheaper to live on base.

What's the chance of being stationed in another country? Is it more likely for people who volunteer for it? Or will It likely happen? (Army)

It depends on rank, job, and needs of the military. My husband was in Germany for about six months by himself and South Korea for 14 months unaccompanied.



Soldiers are allowed a wish list of their first duty station when they're finished with AIT. It's not very common to get your first choice. My husband was given a list of places that had a need for his MOS at our last duty station. Before we even got the chance to discuss where we wanted to go he was picked up for South Korea.

Thanks. I'm so nervous we will get a place we don't like. But I guess that's expected

That usually happens. My husband was at Fort Bragg. He hated it. My dad was stationed at Fort Polk, LA. My mom hated it. My dad was stationed in Hawaii and Germany. Those were their best duty stations.

We're at Ft. Riley, KS and just recently moved on post. We're allowed 3 pets, but they have certain breed restrictions, I think there's a total of 10-12 breeds (or any mixes of) that can not be on post, other than that it's fair game. You do have to pay the deposit for each pet here though.

Here - it's better for us to live on post, we lived off post and BAH + commute, he was losing money, daily (he drives a truck). When he PCS, we'll look into it though again and decide our options. We just recently moved on post and we really like it, but luckily - we ended up in really nice housing in one of the better, quieter neighborhoods on post. And for the amount in BAH we get, our house is a lot bigger on post than the apartment we were paying for, plus now we get a garage and a yard. :) And he comes home after PT and for lunch.
