Whether you are new to military life as a civilian male military spouse, or you have been in the military life for years, you should know where military installations are located (epecially if your spouse just received orders).

Find Military Bases with these Military Base Locators. Use these Base Locators to Find Military Installations Around The World.


We're Moving Where?

My wife came home one day and told me she got her orders. Before she told me the installation, she told me I might want to sit down.

"Hill Air Force Base", she said.

"Where is that?", I asked.

"Utah.", she replied.

"Where is that?", I asked.

That was more than 17 years ago. But I remember the feeling, like everything stopped for that moment. I remember thinking, "We're moving where?"

I had to loohup Utah on a map. When I found it, I still kept thinking, "We're moving where?"

(Turned out to be one of the best places we have ever lived.)

Back then, I used AAA Triptiks  to find Hill AFB, Utah. Now, you can find military bases much easier  online. Here are my Top 3 Online Military Base Locators.

3. Military.com Base Locator

Pretty straight-forward military base listing with a map, so you can see where the installation is located. Click on a military installation link in the list (or the map) to see information about the military base.

2. MilitaryBases.com

You can browse by state and see the different military bases in the United States and overseas. This site gets bonus points because you can learn more about each base, get directions, find housing nearby, look at hotel rates for the area. 

1. "OK, Google..."

Using my phone or tablet, I just ask the "Google Lady" to tell me where a military base is. For example, I say, "OK, Google, WHere is Tinker, AFB?" The Google Lady tells where the base is and shows me a map and some other information.

Why number one? As a vision-impaired person, the OK Google voice commands help make finding information easier. Plus, I like talking to the Google Lady.

RobSitePic.jpg[These aren't real questions that avid readers have sent in, yearning for my sage advice. I'm just paraphrasing some discussions I've had about money with family, friends, and co-workers]

I just changed jobs. Should I leave my 401(k) with my old employer, or roll it over to my new employer's 401(k) plan?
