Branch of Service: Army
Currently stationed: Ft. Hood, Texas
How long have you been there?: 4 years
Favorite restaurant in the area: Dead Fish Grill, super yummy. Located on the Belton Lake shore. About a 20 minute drive outside of Ft. Hood.
3 favorite things to do in your current city: The weather is awesome. It’s super, super hot in the summer but the winter is so mild (usually) that it makes up for it :) Make sure if you are stationed here that you get your pictures taken with the Texas Bluebonnet :) For kiddos, there are some awesome parks on post and lots of things in the surrounding towns to do. Also make sure you make the drive to San Antonio Sea World once a year because military gets in for free!
What is the biggest draw back to where your current duty station? I think the biggest drawback to Ft. Hood right now is how crazy busy it is. Thankfully A TON of our soldiers are home right now but that means overcrowding, ridiculous waits at the commissary and at the front gate. It also means loads of traffic! I'm a small town girl so it’s overwhelming to me. Lol.
