Thinking about Ft Sam Houston, Ft Beninning, Ft. Jackson, and Hawaii. Which one did you like the best and why?

For things to do and family oriented, FT Bliss is the best post I have been to in mostly warm weather. You can do long distance shooting for free on BLM lands, camp in the mountains at Cloudcroft, and the amenities for school age children on post are incredible. It is also a safe city, far safer than San Antonio.

The amenities--much of which have been built within the last 15 years--at Ft. Bliss are plentiful and very nice; and the surrounding El Paso is a fun city.

SSG (Join to see) - If you don't mind me chiming in, I was there for training and as a holdover, it's Tradoc, the town isn't the kind of place you want to take a family to unless you live well away from post. They have one brigade 3id and rangers, plus training, lots and lots of training. Don't know why it matters, but it seems there's a different mindset among those in training. Town was rundown, had to travel up to exit 8 to find anything decent for the family.
