From the threads that I have read, there seems to be a split between career military folks who love HR, the locals and non-military transplants who say it is not a good area to raise a family. But, from my own research, the public schools in the HR area sound better than around Fayetville, NC (there are position at Fort Bragg I am considering). Anyway, thanks for responding to my post.

Actually, Hampton Roads is a pretty good place to raise a family. Pretty safe, good schools, decent quality of life, very suburban bedroom community feel. The problem is affording it, and you wont have a problem at all with that.
