Life on Post – Part 2, What’s It Like Being A Soldier?

IT IS MORE THAN A HOME – IT IS A COMMUNITY
Most Soldiers are pleasantly surprised by the facilities an Army Post offers. You’ll find fitness centers, movie theatres, even tax-free shopping at the Post Exchange (PX) and Commissary—where you can buy almost anything from DVD players to groceries to clothing. With all this within reach, an Army Post isn’t just a place to live—it’s a community.

POST HOUSING (Single Soldiers)
Where you live on an Army Post depends on your rank and family situation, those with higher rank or number of family members, have more housing options. For most new Soldiers, living on Post is a lot like living in an apartment complex. See an example of the places single Soldiers are living with these panoramas.
