    They will show you what is available, and if more than one is available that your DH qualifies for, you get to choose between them.

    I'm going through the same process here right now. This post does not allow my husband's rank to live on base so I have been taken off base to one apartment so far. DH just wants to pick the one I have looked at, but now I'm leaning toward looking at another one to compare.

    Ok thanks, that is what I thought!!
    But my coworkers (who are military wives) were trying to tell me other wise.

    I know here, we have several floor plans to the houses and I figured that we would just look at floor plans

    I'm not sure if theres a difference but it looks like you are from Idaho and when I was stationed on Mountain Home AFB with my ex they showed us the houses and we could put in our preference but we were assigned to the house they gave us. If we didn't want the house then we could turn it down and try to get another one..

    Yea I dont really care what the house is like... I just want a house!!
    And hopefully they can take my general poa, instead of a special. The only special I ended up getting was for deers

    They give you a choice somewhat. They tend to have certain houses open based on rank. Sometimes there are different floor plans so they can show you a couple. You can accept or reject them. But generally if you deny more than two you go down to the bottom of the list and have to wait to get to the top again before being offered housing.

    You might need a special. I can't remember if a general works for housing.

    I used my special (covered everything under the sun in detail, we wrote it ourselves).

    But a friend used her General and it went thru.
