Ft. Hood

Looks like I'm going to be moving to Texas in the next few months. Anyone been stationed there? Have advice on places to live? Decent school districts? Nice apartment complexes? You know that kind of ****.

I have been looking around the interwebz and Belton seems nice... any first hand experience would be awesome.

Oh... 3rd BDE 1st Cav, but I'm going to try getting switched to 3rd ACR, I hope that goes well.

Im stationed in Hood right now with 4th BCT 1st Cav, but I have a good number of friends who are in 3rd ACR. Personally I think Cove is a little better than Killeen but I have lived in Texas for 17 years and I mean Killeen/Cove area just has never seemed to great to me.

yea cove is nicer in terms of crime rate and things like that, less military people, older community, quieter...but its also a longer drive, and theres pretty much nothign to do in cove adn will have to drive to killeen to do anything. i lived in copperas cove for 5 months before i went to afghanistan, i wouldnt go back

killeen has a younger crowd, clubs, movie theatres, shopping, everything u need, but the lil punks around there need to get their ***** kicked, i guess its like that around any military instalation....i just bought a house on the outskirts of killeen near the airport, brand new house really nice.

in terms of apartments...just search on google, theres a complex on bacon ranch rd thats really nice, i had alot of friends that lived there i forget the name...ow and stay away from rancier, its dirt cheap and ur car will get broken into lol, pretty much id stay south of I95 its not entirely bad down there, nothing compared to north of I95

good luck

89th MP Bde...my company is in afghanistan, you'll see the rest of my battalion jerking off patroling the road and sleeping in patrol vehicles in **** when u get there....

ow and more advice....the DA cops there, are dick bags, dont try to outrun them and crap, the actual MPs will cut u some slack

another thing, u might want to check out harker heights, its close enough to hood, but far enough away from killeen that its not a total **** hole, its a lil bit more expensive too i think...

ow and u can find a house to rent for damn near the price of an apartment around ft hood, u might want to check that out

belton is too far away, its like a 30 min drive with no traffic

killeen school district is supposidly bad, idk, i dont have kids, but its all military kids so for the most part theyre corrupted ****in idiots...copperas cove school district has a one of the best HS football teams in the state lol....thats all i really know about them

Harker heights ain't a bad place to live, I went to school in Belton and that place sucks. Plus is a good half hour dirve to base. Killeen and the cove are absolute ****holes. As far as fields, I think the closest is Waco? although I might be wrong

EDIT: I wouldnt know to much about the apartments around here. A sgt in my plt has a nice one in Killeen tho, Ill found out what apartment complex it is. There is a good field around here. Webers has a nice one and Powerplay in Waco aint bad.
