Ok, I'm new to the whole Navy thing. My husband just left for basic training on March 16 and is going into the nuke program. We will be heading to Charleston, SC after he is done with basics and I have a lot of questions about the area there plus housing situations. We were told by several recruitors that we would be able to have a house off-base when we moved but mere days before he left, they said no, we would have to live in on-base housing during his A-school. Since then, we were told that the housing there is now privatized and we would likely be able to have our own house. Is there anyone out there who has been through this before that can tell me what to expect? How long does it generally take for wives to be able to move with their husbands and what is housing like? ANY information would be sooo much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!!
