Can anyone recommend a nice apartment community in, or near, Bethesda? Where do most of the corpsman live?
Most corpsman live in the barracks, as many are single and if that's the case it's where they have to start out. If they're married or can get permission to live off base, there are SO MANY apartments it's really overwhelming. The area immediately surrounding Bethesda is really expensive because it's close to DC but I would recommend looking into Gaithersburg or Germantown apartments. It's far enough north that the cost goes down a lot and still only about a 20 minute drive. Having a roomie to share costs would be helpful too. Hope that helps!
