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…Continue
Hey girl thanks for adding me! My boyfriend is on the USS George HW Bush. He is an AZ which is an Aviation Maintenance Administrationman. He has been in the Navy almost two years in April. They just got back from deployment a week ago after 7 months. It's been so awesome and a bit overwhelming at the same time! We are actually in the process of looking for apartments now. We were thinking Virginia Beach and Portsmouth but I think we have decided on Norfolk just because the location is so close the base. In fact I'm about to apply for an apt online now, haha. Right now I live about 3.5 hours west of Norfolk in Danville, VA, but I'll be moving there as soon as I put my notice in at work. I'm sooo thrilled though and very ready to be with the boy on a daily basis haha. I'm really stressed about meeting people too, I won't know a single person once I get there so I would love to hang out! Btw, I added you on facebook, my name is Brittany Langford! :)
I know that feelling its been hard for me to meet girls because i do have a daughter and thats my first priority so sometimes i can hang and sometimes i cant so thats been hard and meeting ppl my own age that have kids i am so young and i had my daughter at 18 so not alot of women have kids yet but thats awesome u have a son anytime u want we can meet up and have a playdate. Idont have a facebook but ill send u my email
I just seen your post on the Norfolk page. My spouse and I live in Portsmouth and depending on which base your husband gets stationed on will depend on where you want to live up here. About the job, I sent you a friend request so I could email you some info. I don't know what kind of job you had in the past, but my company is still looking for one more person. I am a gas meter reader and it pays pretty good if you like to walk and be outside. If you can walk, at least 5 miles a day let me know and I will send you the info. Find out from your husband what base he is going to be on and that will tell you where you want to live. Traffic here is murderous and where you live isn't much better, there have been 11 homicides in Norfolk in the past 2 months so you have to pick the area wisely. I have spoken with a spouse in military housing and she says it isn't too bad. The drawback is they take your BAH, all of it.
