I joined the Marine Corps straight out of High School in 2007 and currently enrolled in college for my criminal justice masters degree. I have a wife with our first baby on the way (Baby girl). I love the Marine Corps and all that it entails. Best gig in the world.

Beaufort, SC

Life in the Lowcountry - 6/14/2010
The cost of living is way over what it should be. A house near a swamp can cost over $300,000 just for the "Water front view". Besides realty, Beaufort is pretty awesome as far as beaches and nature at its finest. Beaufort itself doesnt have much for entertainment, but is centralized to many places if you dont mind driving. Savannah, Ga and Charleston, SC is only 45 minutes away. You can make a weekend trip to Jacksonville, Fl (5 hours) or Myrtle Beach, SC (4 hours). Its a vacation area. Its small and I have never even heard of it until I recieved orders to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. I was raised in a big city (Houston, Tx) and this is a nice step away from the hussle and bussle that comes with the big city lifestyle. Overall, Beaufort is in my top 6 (out of 14) of the places that I have been based.
