Hello everyone! My husband who is in A school in Pensacola, FL just got his first orders. He graduates at the end of the month and is coming home to Hawaii for leave and to come and get me for the move. I'm so excited for this big step in our life and a little scared. I know that they are on deployment and the likelihood of him leaving me in San Diego is a highly possible but I am still wanting to move. I have so many questions. And if you have the answers I would love to hear them. My first question is where are we going to be living? I know we get BAH now for Hawaii but because I am fairly new to San Diego I would love to live in miitary housing. Also, I looked on craigslist for jobs but San Diego is so big I don't know where to look cause I don't want to drive too far. Any advice is great advice so I would love anything anyone has to say. I look forward to joining the Makin Island Family...
You can go on Facebook to Makin Island FRG...ask to friend/join...will need to put name and who your sailor is and you can get lots of info that you need there. I'm on there too.
I have a Son and Daughter-In-Law who will be leaving Corry Station, FL the middle of this month and reporting to San Diego and the USS Makin Island on March 13th. She will also be new to the San Diego area. You will be there a bit ahead of her. Perhaps you could meet up and start a new friendship. I know it is exciting but not easy to re-settle somewhere new. :)
