You all are so geographicly diverse and smart that I thought I'd get some information from you. My dh is active duty Army and will be retiring in four years. :haha: He will more than likely go back to work for Uncle Sam as a civilian so it would be nice if we could find property near a military base, at least within 30 minutes to one. Army or Airforce or Navy it doesn't really matter. We would like affordable property ie. a house (dh won't hear of a mobile or manufactured home :no: ) and twenty or so acres for less than 200K. Anybody know of an area that might fit the bill? Theresa.
