A. Hi Alexis,
Thank you for writing Army Wife 101!
Your question is a simple and easy one and I hope my answer will give you some insight.
Simply put you can always live onpost but that is contingent on if housing is available at the time to fit your family size. What you will want to do is as soon as your husband graduates AIT and receives his orders with you and your children listed on them, you will want to contact the housing office at your new duty station and see what the protocol is for placing your name on the housing list.
Many Army housing offices will require you to actually arrive at the duty station first and then place your name on the list, while others will allow you to fax your orders and other documentation and place your name on the list before you arrive.
In the mean time if you would like to see how Army housing at any Army post looks you can visit One Stop Army
Here you will be able to view actual pictures of housing.
Once again I hope the above information is of help to you and be sure to check out my video tutorials on Understanding Military Pay, PCS Moves Etc here at Army Wife 101.
