What is the most difficult task you undertake when settling at a new duty station? For me, it is finding my new everything. A new grocery store, hair salon, yoga studio and a place to enjoy a special night out. I am a very routine person so it is necessary for my mental health to quickly establish a new routine when we arrive at a new duty station. After reading the questions posted in spouse group forums, I am definitely not alone. As we are getting into the thick of PCS season, we hope to help you find your new everything.
We asked, and you answered! Spouses/SOs across the globe responded with their favorite place for a nice dinner, nail salon, yoga studio, place to have an adult beverage, and their favorite outdoor/adventure activity at their current and previous duty stations.
We shared Groton. Next up, Norfolk!
