Family Housing

The Pacific Northwest is one of the military's best duty stations with historical and cultural attractions, diverse outdoor recreational activities, outstanding educational opportunities, and very friendly people!

Western Washington is well known for all the rain we get, but because of this rain, it is green and lush all year round. And when we have clear sunny weather, you won't believe the incredible views.
