We lived off base in Kailua for 2 years and just recently moved into housing. We enjoyed living off base but it does have its downsides. My twin kindergarteners go to Kainalu Elementary and we love it!

If living on base it will be Mokapu Elementary. It’s not a DOD school. My daughter attended for half of kindergarten when we arrived January 2017.

We just moved here to MCBH this January and I have a kindergarten student, 3rd grader, and 6th grader and we love Mokapu! Also, we live here on base and are enjoying it so much.

We live off base in Kailua, I love the little town but miss the sense of community on base. I recommend base housing but that's just me.

My now 8th grader went to Mokapu K-6 -- she is an honors student at Kailua Intermediate now. If you live on base, you are not restricted to Mokapu. You can request a geographical exception for your keiki to attend either Aikahi or Kainalu Elementary school off base in Kailua. If buying a home, your dollars won't go as far as on the real estate market as it would in other cities. I lived in a home in Kaneohe Woods but moved further North this summer. Good luck!!

I’ve never used it, but when my husband was deployed I needed a command letter allowing me to fly Space A...without it dependents can’t fly without your sponsor.

From the inbox: "Is anyone’s husband an Army Geo Bachelor? We are considering this for our family but my question is will our BAH be based off of his post in Hawaii or where our family is staying( we are voluntarily headed back to Florida). Also does your husband still collect COLA even though the family isn’t there? Thank you" ... See MoreSee Less

BAH is based off where the dependents are at. He can be stationed here in Hawaii but y’all will receive Florida BAH. Only time that’s not the case is if the military doesn’t know y’all are in Florida or if he is at a command where dependents aren’t allowed to join.

We did this years ago. My husband is navy and his boat homeport changed and the kids and I stayed behind. We received BAH for Hawaii as well as COLA. I don’t remember if the cola was just for him or the family, but I know we got it.

Bah will be based on the zip code with dependants where you will be. Cola will only be for him. If he is going to be living off post (base on rank) he will get oha for his rank without dependant.

He will get BAH for wherever his orders are.
