We lived on base in Tucson for years, we both really liked it. And like you witnessed at dinner, they are pretty nice. We lived in an area that housing was brand new, we were only the second family to leave in it. Do you know is the housing duplexes, fourplexes or a mix?
The housing on our base just went privitized. It used to be just maintained by the base, and alot of it was in disrepair and some unfit for living. There's still some older areas and they are in the process of moving people out of the old houses and into the new and they get first dibs. There actually is apartment style, two floor multiplexes. But we're going to try and stay to a single floor dwelling. The one we visited is a duplex house. Each side has its own garage and fenced in yard. They are adding more houses as well to accomodate more people. Before it went privitized you didn't pay for anything..but you didn't get any BAH. Now, you get BAH but they take out "rent" automatically. I still think we'd save money living on base, and I definately will feel safer there.
