We need PCS places! — The Bump

We need PCS places!

We were in Alaska for 3 years and we've been in TX for 1.5.  DH is putting in a recruiting packet so we can literally go ANYWHERE in the U.S., not just around bases.  We really need ideas. We really like history and museums, plus DH is going to school to be a pilot so any of that would be a perk. We haven't really loved TX because there aren't 4 seasons (we're in SOUTH TX) and our families are in Michigan and Arkansas so possibly somewhere close to those.  Give me some of your favorite cities ladies!!

Thanks for helping!

  • I'm a coast person. If I could go anywhere, bases notwithstanding, I'd pick NY, Boston, DC, San Francisco, Monterey, and LA. In that order.

  • I loved my time at Scott AFB, near St. Louis.  Very family friendly, tons of free activities to do with kids, zoos, museums, breweries and wineries, sports, not an unreasonable drive to MI or AR.

  • I would say DC, its full of history and museums (obviously), idk about the flight school thing, but its definitely a happy medium between Arkansas and Michigan. Might be a little closer to MI, but still in between.

  • I would say Northern Indiana for Purdue. From what I understand they have something to do with aviation.  I think Indiana State University does too.  Chicago isn't a bad drive from there.

  • Daytona Beach, FL the recruiting station is in the mall. Embry Riddle Aeronautical University is five minutes from there. Daytona is also 35 minutes from St. Augustine which is full of history.

  • If you aren't able to get a spot in one of the previously mention areas I know a town with recruiting offices for some branches. It is a small town not far from big cities. But the perk is that they have a community college for your husband to take pilot program classes.  The school name is Big Bend Community College, in Moses Lake, WA. The landing strips were just being used by a few groups after Larsen Air Force base closed. 

     This idea may work for you if he wants to try to get into classes and work at the same time. Good luck and hope you get a great place.

    Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
    All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!
