    After I'm done Basic Training I'm getting stationed in Georgia... I've never been there, so has anybody here? If so, what's it like?

    Mostly swamps where the Army has bases...however Georgia can be a real party town!

    Have visited with our daughter and son-in-law at Ft. McPherson in Atlanta.
    Beautiful army post. Not at all like what most people have in mind for an army base. Keep your fingers crossed that you are lucky enough to be assigned there.

    On another note, if you suffer from allergies, Georgia can be hell in the springtime.

    I've been to Ft. Stewart and Ft. McPherson. GA is hot and humid, but I enjoyed my times there.

    Ft. Stewart wasn't TOO bad (better than Ft. Riley was in my book!). Being close to Savannah and the coast made it more bearable. The alligators and mosquitos will drive ya nuts though!

    I lived in Fort Rucker, AL. for a lot of my younger years, very hot and humid, I'd imagine it's the same along the latidute there. The people around there should steriotypically be supportive of the military, too.
