It's a huge post. Often they do training throughout the Bliss and WSMR training areas, which combined make up the largest training area in the country. El Paso kind of sucks and it's not uncommon for someone with chihuahua license plates to slam on their brakes in front of a government vehicle to file a lawsuit. Las Cruces is about 40 minutes away and is usually a much nicer town. Bliss itself is quite nice and when I was stationed at WSMR we actually needed to drive to Bliss to handle anything finance related. There are a ton of troops on that post. Have fun, but don't get into trouble and don't cross into Juarez because you are not authorized. Side note, a lot of clubs and strip joints in El Paso are off limits to service people, so know where you can and can't go.
I left in 2016, from a five year station there! If you’re part of a sustainment brigade, you’ll get plenty of experience! The new state of the art hospital should be finished by now. It’s a very musically astute area. They real try to have a variety of activities to do, bc there’s really nothing major around for about 80 miles in all directions! And think about venturing over into Mexico 7 miles south of El Paso (Definitely don’t show/use your military ID!!!), you’re NOT authorized.
