I have 3 dependents and I want to live in Patton village because it is literally like 5 minutes from work. Worth it?

I would do it in a heart beat! The houses there are nice and in great condition and given the hours you'll be working you can't beat saving every minute you can get. When I was a drill, they didn't have housing on post available, so I made the critical error of getting a house, 30 minutes away, and man did I pay for it. I cost me an hour a day and when your days are already as long as they are, that's huge. Trust me on this one, take the closest housing you can get every time!

The less time you spend in traffic the better. I lived in FT. Mitchell and not only was it a long commute but my house was broken into and I had to deal with that pain as well.

I came from Benning last year. You will get into Patton village because you are a SSG. If you already have orders, call Fort Benning housing at [login to see] to get on the waiting list. You can request what housing division you want to stay in so once you arrive, your house will be ready. Once you call them, you have to upload a copy of your orders to reserve the space. I hope this helps.

I am currently serving as a DS at fort benning right now. I live in Patton village and it is a great feeling getting off work with the late hours and having a 5 min ride home. You also get that little extra time in the morning as well. Patton village has well maintained houses minus some of the backyards closer to the woods side, but the parks on every other street make up for that and there are great amenities such a pool, splash park, game room and workout center.
