We will be pcsing to Camp Zama late June/early July 2012 from another base in Japan. We have 3 children in high school and middle school (3), ages 16, 15 and 12 so I'm assuming we'll qualify for a 4 bedroom as we did here. I've tried looking at the housing site but I couldn't find the answers. Does anyone know if the field grade housing is single family or multi-plex? We have 2 dogs so I know we can't reside in the towers. Also, does housing provide lawn care or are we responsible for it like we are here??Last question is does anyone know if American High School has culinary arts classes? One of our daughters is taking them here, as that's her chosen career path, and she's hoping to continue to take them there.Thanks in advance for any questions you can answer! I've tried to research this online but couldn't find these answers!!

I live in a tower so not really sure if you can hire anyone for lawn care. I have not seen many single family units around. I have noticed a few in SHA but most housing is duplex or multiplex. Never looked that close but I do not recall anyone having a fence for their yard. I'm not sure other than the eagles nest that housing is really that different from anyone else as a field grade officer.
Thanks, I'll make sure that hubby doesn't get rid of the lawmower then!
Bummer about the fence- but we'll adjust if we can't have it. Housing sounds fine (duplex or multiplex)- just wanted to know if the fence was feasible for what we would get. Thanks for the help- I appreciate it!

Yes apparently my husband read in the JFTR if you exceed your % they will bill you...heavily because it's an overseas move. We got our RFO amended to allow for the storage of or POV at Government expense.
Not only are the rules not the same for everyone but no one we talk to seems to even know the rules because we are getting a lot of conflicting information.
We have known for awhile that we were going to Zama. My lists have lists at this point! However, since our orders haven't been officially cut yet we haven't been able to do a whole lot. Nor should we have since we have known SEVERAL people in our career that have been burned by being too prepared too soon and things fell apart!!! We are still in a holding pattern that is so frustrating!!!!! Housing sent us a letter projecting housing from our June 1st arrival.... Would be really nice to get those orders!!!
