Bragg, Campbell and Drum are all in the same league. Click here to enlarge Well, Drum is worse since it gets all that snow.

Click here to enlarge Bragg is the armpit of the army.

I do not like it that much, this is my second time here. The only PLUS to bragg is that it's only an EIGHT HOUR DRIVE from my hometown Click here to enlarge

But, I've never been to Campbell. Click here to enlarge

I loved Fort Lewis. It was our favorite duty station. Lots of rain, but so much to do! Beaches, mountains, plains, forests. It has everything.

It's a very child friendly place to live too. Some people can't get over the rain though.Click here to enlarge

It's only an hour away from me and my bil was stationed there for a while. We take the trip to go there every once in a while because I like their commesary better than ours. The rain does suck. They have an awesome hospital on base too, Madigan hospital.

My ex-h was stationed there. I'm from around that area.
It's not bad. If you're going to live out in town take your time to find a good neighborhood. You can pm me if you end up there and I can help you there.

Karen is right, Madigan is a great hosiptal.

There are all kinds of great local things to do, Seattle is about 40 minutes from Ft. Lewis, ocean is nearby, it's great.

The best things in life are unexpected, because there were no expectations.

I have a dear friend moving there for the second time next month. She really likes the area, schools and activities to do but housing is very expensive...at least I think. They are looking at 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes that run some $200,000 and up wich to me is very pricey even with the BAH. And these are pretty standard homes - not high end as you would think with that price tag.

I am here at Bragg and leaving....Yipee! Bragg really is not a bad post - lots to do, great units unfortunatly you have to deal with Fayetteville which is a true armpit and sucks in all aspects.

I disagree with both of you, Polk is the armpit of the Army. It's also located in the armpit of America.

Of course, it was the only army post we were ever stationed at, but it still sucked donkeyballs.

Freak!! Click here to enlarge The roaches, the heat, the humidity...blech. Taught me that I could never be a southern girl.

The armadillos were kinda cute though, well, when we weren't running over them.

It smelled really really good there though. And I miss all the nice places to walk. Clarksville doesn't have any really god places to walk. Click here to enlarge

Plus I am not big on shopping, and I like doing outdoor type stuff, and I loved the scedule Kevin had there, he was almost always home around 4...

Plus I had some really good friends down there. I haven't really met a whole lot of people here so far, even though we have been here twice as long.
