I need quite a bit of help right now:

We are Navy so keep that in mind when answering any of these:

1. Tell me about the childcare on base... do I have to pay for it? What are your experiences? Can I just do it one day a week, or can I do it like an hour or two a day? So yeah, fill me in.

2. Navy relief... I've heard they give grants instead of loans sometimes. Anyone experienced this? What makes you a grant recipient instead of a loan recipient? We are getting fucked over HARD CORE by out insurance assholes and I need some help. I'm talking a $700 premium screw, so nothing we can just throw on the credit card. I need some help. This isn't poor planning, this is poor choice of an insurance agent.

I just switched to Triwest---um I was not aware that I had a "deductible." Is this correct?? Anyone else have this over here?

I went to the ER for a cyst, the ER doc refered me to a OBGYN. I asked him at the time if I needed to call Tricare and get a referal or something stupid and he said no & they accept tricare prime, which I have. So what's the problem? I've never had to pay a dime before. Help.

I know this is a really weird and silly question....but I cut my husbands hair for the first time instead of him getting it on base, and I have no idea how to "fade". He wanted me to blend it in from the bottom shorter part to the top. Does anyone do hair or cut their husbands hair and know how to do this?

Weird Question.. [
Feb 7 2006

[ mood | frustrated ]

I came here from Louisiana and when I lived there we had base housing. It was on the military base and the rent was whatever your Bah was and there wasn't an application process you just showed them your orders and they gave you a house. Now, however, my husband is stationed at NS Everett in Washington.

Can someone tell me where the base housing is and what it's like? When I goggle it I get three or four different places none of which are on the base. I found a place in Arlington that says its navy housing but it has rent prices. Is there a place like what I described above here? Thank you!
