Good afternoon all! I'm new to this group and I have some questions. Our son is currently in his "A" school at Ft Sam Houston for HM. He's hoping that he'll get selected for Orthopedic Technician for his "C" school and is asking for Norfolk as his duty station. He and his Girlfriend just got engaged and plan to be married prior to the end of their "C" schools. They should both be HM3s when they graduate. My questions: is where is Petty Officer Family housing on base? Is there adequate family housing, or a shortage? Would they live at one of the bases around Norfolk and work at another? If they have to live off base, is there a preferred area of town and an area to be avoided?
