So I know that every base is different and such, but are any of you guys members of one or know much about them? FI brought home a ton a literature last Thursday (they had a welcome program for the new people on base) and one of the booths set up was for the OSG and FI went over and asked if he could have some information for his fiancee and if they accepted fiance/ees to join. She apparently gave him sort of a look and said something to the tune of "whatever, but it'd be easier if you were married." Not exactly warming me to the idea.
I've already e-mailed with the "Key Spouse," she actually gave him a welcome letter to give to me, and she seems really nice and pretty available. So, I guess, do I need to get involved with the OSG? Part of me says yes, because there's info I need, and also we'll be here 3 years and I want to be able to be involved on base, they seem to do a lot of service projects/fundraisers and get togethers, all of which sound like a lot of fun. The other part of me thinks I should just wait til after the wedding so that it's all kosher. I know that it looks good to have a spouse that's involved with the base, and I want FI to have it, plus, several things they do (like the bazaar) I've done before with groups and had a lot of fun with. And I'd like to meet some friends here. Any advice or personal experiences?
