    When your spouse gets orders to a new base your head is swimming with questions – Where should I live? What fun things are there to do? Who is going to cut my hair?! Don’t stress!







    We’re giving you the 411 on the best of what your new duty station has to offer.







    Each week, Kimber will sit down with someone who has actually been stationed at that base, and find out everything you need to know, ranging from great places to live to where you can find the best slice of pizza.
