We just received verbal orders to Groton, CT. DH and I met and married here in VA, so this will be my first military move. Can anyone tell me about the area? We're considering base housing, which will also be a first for both of us. Looking at local rents, utilities and schools, it seems like housing would be a good option as it feeds into what looks like a decent elementary (Barnum). PCS probably won't be til near the holidays, but I'm trying to get an idea of what to expect. TIA!
