    Any suggestions? Just need a 1-2br townhouse/apt/house for a single Army officer.

    Eglin is pretty nice but some parts of it are kinda meh. Depends how far you want to drive, I was about 20 miles from Eglin down 98 past hurbie... was a pain to drive past hurbie every morning because of the traffic but was right across from the beach nearly and I had a 4.5 acre lot

    I know the houses were cheap when I was there but the prices jumped up a lot, lots of stuff in crestview was selling cheap so if you are a single officer I would say buy something down there
    with all the military I dont feel you will ever have issues with trying to sell it

    Any of you guys know Colonel Plum? He's one of the Wing Comm's at Eglin, not sure which wing though. His son lives across the hall from me, same year as me in my squadron.

    personally i HATED living in dorms - i hated the feeling of never really "leaving" work, and never really feeling like i had my own place.

    you can almost always make money off your BAH if you get a roommate or two.

    it's also nice to not have to go through the gate every time you want to go home, or deal with excercises and jet noise, etc.

    i would make a concerted effort to never live on base if you can avoid it.

    that's half a year, i would def. get an off-base apt or townhouse.

    i did a 5 month TDY to randolph and almost gouged out my eyes living in the TLF there, unfortunately we weren't allowed to live off base but if i could have i would have.
