    Help Fort Benning, GA

    Advertisements
    Hi fellow MSO/S's

    My husband recently got accepted to the OCS program in Benning. While he was enlisted, we were stationed overseas. I moved home when he was deployed two years ago! We have been apart sooo long, and we have a 5 month old now.

    I know that our time together will be very limited while he is training , but I've got to get out of my parents home and closer to my hubby!

    Does anyone have advice/tips on rentals or long term lodging in the fort benning area??? ALL HELPFUL HINTS welcome! we will be there for about 5-6 months.

    Thanks so much!

    Hmmm i know that most apartments in the area will do 6month lease, maybe you could look into that. Also there is an extended stay hotel, but i have no idea how much that would be.

    I was thinking a 6 month rental. Any apartment/condos with good reputations? military friendly communities? apartment complexes your friends are sublimely happy with???

    Neighborhoods to avoid?

    Thanks so much for your responses.

    also..the extended stay hotel did have reasonable rates...but after thinking about it, an apartment would be best with the baby.

    thanks for the tips!

    Greystone Apartments.

    Greystone Farms
    Greystone Reserve
    Greystone Summit

    I highly recommend any of these 3 and you can sign a lease and get out by showing orders.

    Let me know if you have more questions


    I would look in North Columbus anything near base is no good.

    Actually... I think they have on base housing for OCS families... At least my DH has been talking about that! (he's currently in OCS) I would call and ask about that at Ft. Benning, because it's worth a look!
