Oh that’s AWESOME!!! It took Darling Husband too long to get home it seemed. It eats up your time flying back and forth, but Darling Husband was really adamant about seeing his family. 

I know lots of people who’ve done this for R&R. They’ve flown…A Class I think? And you can just wing it if you’re flying around cuz you fly standby and can end up wiating a few days for flights. I haven’t used the actual military website lodging, but i’ve had friends use it. They do say it’s quite a pain. You may be able to check places online and get a better discount via the internet instead of those Army sites.

Maybe your FRG leader has some insight? You are definitely not the first couple to take R&R closer to Iraq.

I am soooo excited for you and your FI!

Germany sounds like a wonderful time. Fiance has shown me different places through the Army Vacation Club but we have never actually used it. When his dad lived in Germany they had a travel agent on base do a lot of their plans for them (which were probably similar deals).

Regardless of what you decide, I hope that you have a wonderful time with your Fiance.

I HAVE THE PERFECT PLACE!! They are even offering specials for those on R&R! 

I have been there and the area is gorgeous! If you like to ski then its great but even if you don’t you will love it. 



I hope this helps and you have a great trip!

I have to second the Edelweiss lodge (and Bavaria in general). I’ve been there in passing and it’s a gorgeous place. As a part Bavarian, the people are friendly, the beer is good and the scenery is breathtaking. It’s a gorgeous place for some R&R!
