I am aware of the top three choices that you request before and/or during DS school. Any opinions for best on-base housing, amenities, stuff for kids, best elementary schools, etc? I'm a 35F, so is follow on assignment mainly dependent on my MOS? Could I go to Benning? I would prefer Jackson.

SSG Scheil, that is a tough question. I did two tours as a DS 1978-1980, 1983-1985 at Ft Benning. I had several friends at Ft Jackson and would visit them. Because at the time Ft Benning did the Infantry OSUT, and Ft Jackson did several other MOS, I would say that I enjoyed Ft Benning. There was not really a time to put soldiers to bed, so we usually went from 0400 - 2300. They ran in boots, and there were definitely No Time Out cards. Best of luck to you.
