    If you got kids that have autism moving in the middle of the school year can set you back. If you truly can I would try to move before the school year starts. This way the kids can be settled in their new school at the start of the school year. I would rather move them now have them get some what focused on everything then start school and than move into officer housing. I think it would be more stressful for them to change schools and moving all at once.

    I do wish you the best of luck. Since this is a tough one.
    It took longer than we thought. Now 2 IUI's, 3 IVF's, 1 FET .
    One day at a time, one step at a time, and one day we will get there.

    At a lot of bases enlisted and officer housing is mixed, unless he will be higher ranked officer. You can't move before he leaves, you could do it while he is gone, however you will have to do it by yourself. So is school in Maxwell or just a tdy?

    Yeah, I'd probably leave the day after he does.... since it'd only be a few weeks before school starts for the kids.
    I know what OTS is, but is it at Maxwell?

    Honestly, if you think you can handle the move with the kids yourself, do it as soon as you can.

    And an example of officer and enlisted housing mixed, a good friend of mine is a Captian, her house is ajoining an E1. I know here only Sr MSgt, and Commanders have different housing to everyone else.

    you will prob find that there is a longer wait list of 3 bedroom, unless there are 2 bedroom houses, 3 bedroom is for couples with do kids, 1 or 2 kids. The base we are moving to has 23 on the 3 bedroom list and 5 on the 4 bedroom list.

    according to the housing website http://www.tyndallfamilyhousing.com/...id=18&k=island Island View is the only housing which is "officer only" and is for O4 and above. So as I said, unless he is higher ranked Officer, you will be mixed with enlisted. I honestly don't see why it should matter what housing you get into anyway.

    Sometimes the older housing is better. I live in a brand new house at the base we are at now and have had endless amounts of problems: plumbing, air con, house shifting and leaving cracks under base board, our garage has dropped about a inch, flooring lifting, our bath tub dropped, kids toilet clogging at least once a month. While it may look nicer, it's the stuff you can't see that will cause problems.
