    Aloha Todd my name is Alan and my family and I currently live in Mililani HI. My wife and I are prior military and are thinking of relocating to the mainland.

    Waco TX. is the #1 spot for military retirement as rated by USAA. We were wondering if you would be willing to offer a little more information on Waco. We love the NEX at PH and also shop at Schofield. I live HI but am begining to wonder if we will be able to own a house here.
    If you have time I would love to hear from you.

    Thank you for your service.

    I live in Killeen, just outside of Ft Hood. I don’t recommend Waco. Too much crime – though I don’t know what information you read on it. I’ve been in the Killeen area for over 15 years – I retired out of Ft Hood 10 years ago. If I were going to relocate somewhere in the area I’d chose Salado. It’s a beautiful small town about 20 minutes from Ft Hood. Nice houses, quiet, picturesque. Maybe Marble Falls which is about an hour from Ft Hood. Waco is also an hour from Ft Hood but the major road – I35 is like a dragway, sometimes averaging 85 mph. Houses are decently priced. My current home was 78K when I bought it in 1996 but is now valued at 101 even with the downturn in the housing market. It’s a 1600 sq ft 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 car garage home in a decent neighborhood about 5 minutes from Ft Hood. Downfall in this area is that it gets stinking hot – 100 degrees the last few days – and vegetation generally dies out July Aug – Ft Hood area looks pretty brown in August.
