My husband just joined the navy and he is currently in bootcamp. After he graduates he will be going to Florida. I was wondering how long it will take for me and our son to be able to go live with him and how does on base housing work? If anyone is married to a sailor in Pensacola,Florida it would be great to know a little more about it. I live across the United States so it is going to be a really big move for our family. I am very nervous and excited at the same time. Any information is greatly appreciated =)
Thank you for the advice. The cover letter is a really good idea. Do you know where I can get a credit report at?
You can get your credit report from each of the 3 credit reporting companies at https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index. I check my report every 4 months--once from each company and that way I can keep on top of any problems. If you find an error on one, order all three. It's free once a year from each.
You can get your credit score for free at http://www.creditkarma.com/ so there is no reason to pay to get it.
Yah they told my husband that too but we moved here anyways. They can't control what I do so I decided to move here no matter what. we still get the BAH to pay for everything. After he finishes up his first set of classes he can live with me on the weekends and he can put in his request to live off base soon. There's ways around it and just as long as you do not get in the way of their training everything is fine. Sounds like your husband just graduated yesterday from bootcamp. Congrats! It really is a special time. When will you be moving to Pensacola?
Hello CC- we moved from there last year to the east coast. My Son is currently in bc & FL after for A school. I hope you and your family are doing well. I don't miss the fat sea lions but man we miss the Smith River!!! Best of luck to you- nice to see a pic of the lighthouse on ur icon-
