It really depends on what area that you live. Working it based on the military which have first options of getting a job in this area. Some areas of the community are very nice but it is how you act when you move in a house or apartment or duplex. The transportation was fine when me and my family moved here but things have change so much. For instance the buses that run have shorten the routes which makes it so difficult to be able to go the doctor or anywhere really.
