We are moving to Ft. Hood soon. We have decided to live on post. We want a stand alone home. The only stand alone homes for E5 I can find are in Chaffee Village and I am hearing horrible things about that area. Any insight y'all can provide would be great. I just don't want to move into a gross house in a bad neighborhood.
I'm not sure if they have changed regs in the Army or what but you don't pick where you live. I have never heard of a post allowing that but I have been out of military life for awhile now. Matter of fact, when we moved to FT Hood we were given ONE housing option, take what we are giving you right now or move off post.
But you can have an input of what type of house if you ask. I asked for a two level and they found me one. Another couple asked for carpeting and they got it.. You have to tell them what they want and they will try to provide you with such if they have it.
