We have orders!

We've actually had partial orders for awhile now, but today, Tom finally received his follow-on assignment and will have his physical orders very soon. Anyway, after his upcoming school, it looks like we're headed to........ Fort Gordon, GA.

Honestly, we were really hoping either for a European assignment or for Fort Meade, but Gordon didn't make the short list of places we didn't want to go, so we're prepared to make the best of it. If anyone has any information on the area, it would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats on getting your orders! I know you've been anxious to have those in hand. I'm afraid I'm not any help with Ft. Gordon, as we were at Benning when we were in Georgia, and I didn't spend any time in the Augusta area.

I can't help you any on Gordon either, sorry. I hope you guys are able to get some onformation before you have to head over there though.


I'll ask Rob if he knows anything when he gets home.

Augusta is where I just finished grad school, Mel. Email me with whatever questions you have on the area and I will see what I can do to help :) I also have a couple friends who are currently stationed there so they might could answer some military-based questions for Gordon

Oh rats I was hoping for Lewis. LOL (even though I have no clue if that was even a possibility) Good luck with the move!

Thanks, Megan. We have quite awhile to prepare for this move since Tom's school isn't over until around Toby's birthday, but mostly right now we're wondering about housing. We generally don't choose to live on post (because, for the most part, we've always been able to live under our BAH), so I'm kind of wondering what areas I should look in/avoid looking in. Obviously, we don't want Tom to have a huge commute, but we also want to live in an area that's safe for our family.

lol....You were hoping for Lewis, one of my friends who just ETS'd from here was hoping for Sill (because they went "back home" to Oklahoma), my best friend was hoping for Belvoir but would have been happy with Meade, Tom wanted Europe, my mother wanted anywhere she could still conceivably visit several times a year (which meant anywhere in the continental US), and I was hoping for a year of language training at Monterey. Looks like Mom is the big winner. I guess it pays to be relatively non-picky.

When my roommate and I were looking for places to live we were told to avoid very few places... By the time you PCS it may be less of a hassle but right now the area where I20 and 520 (Bobby Jones Expressway)

Thank you, Megan! Tom's school will probably be finishing up around mid-March, so we're probably looking at moving around that time, though if we find an acceptable place a month or two prior, we have the option of Toby and I going ahead and getting settled. I will definitely contact you as more questions arise.
