JBLM is a great place to live.
Advantages to living on JBLM:
The military member is close to home and can get home easier after work than living off post. Sometimes, I even went home for lunch.
Traffic is atrocious off base from 7am-9am and 4pm-6pm.
Safety - crime has significantly increased in Washington State since 2020. Car thefts and vandalizations are rampant.
Violent crime has increased and homelessness is far out of control. This isn't to scare you rather than to prepare you.
If you drive in a rental truck and stay at a hotel off base, many have been broken in to. I always suggest parking it on base and head to your hotel.
I do suggest staying at the hotel on base if you can.
Get on the housing waitlist as soon as you get hard orders!
Book a hotel room on base as soon as possible if you have to wait on housing.
