Schofield Barracks, HI

Possible posting from Australia

Hi Everyone, As you may see by my name I am an Australian wife of a solider who is currently in the process of deciding on a posting to Schofield barracks in Hawaii. I would like to get into contact with some families, especially australians who have already made the transition to the US. I am very interested to find out as much information as I can about what it's like to live there, what the schooling system is like, we have two children and one is about to start school here in aus in a year but unsure of the difference in ages for the schooling over there. There are plenty of other questions that i have as well, which include: Work for the spouses What is the housing like What is on base (from what i have heard it's huge compared to australian ones so i'm very interested to know what the lifestyle is like) Medical and Dental care And anything else you might be able to inform me on would be of great help in the decision process. I thank you in advance for you help.  (Aug 17, 2009 | post #1)
