    Anyone else. I know it is a rural areas and no longer a base but a training facility. I know Blackstone is a small town nearby. What other areas are good to live in?

    Try Kenbridge as well. Its a small town, I believe theres only like 2500 people but its very nice and the people are super friendly. South Hill is the bigger town in the area. Thats where we'd go for Taco Bell or a super great womens gym. There is a very yummy Mexican restaurant in South Hill as well. Look under Lunenburg county and Mecklenburg county. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Yeah, the few people I ve chatted with about training there said it sucked. The pictures show buildings that looked like they havent been touched since the 1940's hahaha. There is a small BX on base and a movies theatre but thats really it.
