My husband and I just got on the wait list for base housing at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Any other military families out there that can offer up some advice?
I am preg with our first baby, Due May 4th, and our check in date for Belvoir is June 1st. (we're currently stationed in Bethesda, MD, so it's just a short move for us, luckily). My husband is active duty Navy, E-3. We qualified for a 3 bedroom place in Belvoir.
We are #129 on the wait list and I don't know what that means. Is that 129 overall, or 129 of all similar ranks with the same move in date? I'm so confused and the housing office is not much help at all. Has anyone else moved there recently? How long did you have to wait? I wonder if we're going to have to move into an off base apartment and wait for a house to open up... I hope not.
Also; how do you know which villages are available for move ins? if there are choices will they give us a choice if something opens up? Georgewashington Village vs. Herryford village for example?
Any help would be great. Thank you! this is our first experience with base housing, and when we PCS'd to bethesda we ended up just having to find an apartment off base and the area and the apartment were pretty crappy.
