We have been stationed at Redstone Arsenal for the past 5 years. From the time we got here, the people have been amazing and very supportive of the military – the most patriotic defense community we have ever been stationed in! The schools are top-notch as well as the shopping and restaurants. We absolutely love Alabama and are honored to call it home!
