I am here to answer any question that anyone may have about the Ft Stewart/Hinesville area. I know how hard it is to relocate in a new area and I hope that his post is of some assistance to anyone that may need it.

Hi, I am looking at relocating in March with a change in duty station. I don't want to go without a job and depend on his pay to support us, and was wondering if you had any advice on the job outlook (I do have a college degree in Social Work but am currently working as a barista at a coffee shop and have waitressing experience). Also, do you have any advice about where to find cheap childcare? And housing, near post, that is affordable? Thank you!

Hello and I would like to be the first to welcome you to Hinesville. Well as far as the jobs go there are some available depending on what type of job you are wanting to settle into. Now there are jobs available in savannah that will probably be more of what you are enquiring about. You can go to monster.com or savannahclassifieds to see what is available. Childcare runs about $75 a week per child or so in the area. How many children do you have and what ages? As far as housing are you looking to buy or rent in the area?

Hi. I am PCSing to Ft. Stewart soon. I was looking at some apartments in Richmond Hill and Pooler as I heard those areas were better than Hinesville. I was wondering if you knew how far those were from the main area of the fort. Thanks.

Smile Fort Stewart, our new home..

Hey !
I just found all this great info while searching for area details on Fort Stewart. We are moving there from "around the corner", Fort Benning. Even though that we are looking at retirement in 2 1/2 years and wanted to retire in the ATL area, I guess we will get to move one more final time !
We have two children, 8 and 6 years old and I was wondering if the housing and on post schools are worth the wait? Since it is not that far away from where we are at right now, the wait would not be so bad.
Also, I am an RN and was wondering about the opportunities in the area.
Thank you so much already for all the info !
Great to have someone to ask..

We are looking to move to within a short commute of our son, who's in Pooler at Hunter AA. I seem to find the most houses which meet our requirements in Richmond Hill, Midway, Pooler, Guyton, Hinesville, a very few in Savannah, and Ludowici. Of these communities, are there any features that are undesireable? Pooler is the only town besides Savannah I'm at all familiar with.
Commute is not an issue, nor are school systems. We do not want to live in the boonies.

I don't want to move in a place where you have to drive 1 hr . to a store. Also have NC in my mind ,winstom Salem. I am German or better I was born and raised in Germany came to America in 1982.
Someone told me in the other forum that going outside Savannah will be hard for me and my family
. see this move have to be right, is will be our last move I don't know now, maybe I should move in the Atlanta area, but I believe is will be more costly.
My ex was in the Army, and I live outside anArmy base in NJ used to work at the Army base, is looks like that all Military bases are more in the country and you have to drive far to get some where.
Please can you help me? Thank you
