Found out we're getting stationed at an Army Reserve base..with a battalion of Reserve Marines.. its a place called Fort Devens. Never heard of it until now and there doesn't seem to be much information for it.

Anyone heard of it/ lived there? Or lived in Mass as non-military? 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

Is it close to Boston?? I have a friend there right now with a Reserve Unit...and live in Fitchfield. 

DanaFromPennsylvania --- 7 years ago -

According to google, its about an hour from Boston. I guess you would call it central MA

I spent all my vacations as a child in Mass. My family is from there. A 180 from CA if you ask me but change is good. Oh how I miss the Cape! 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

I will be talking to her this weekend - I will ask her the base name. That's about how far they are out of Boston...just not sure that is it.

Never lived in Mass but I grew up in RI... you're going to LOVE that area!!!! hope you like snow though, its been a bad winter for them this winter!

SOOOOO much to do out there and sooooo soooooooo much history! 

DanaFromPennsylvania --- 7 years ago -

I'm originally from PA, so I'm sure it won't be too different. But after living 2 years in Hawaii, then 9 months here, its gonna be hard to get back to that kind of cold! Plus I am going to miss the military community! 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

its been a bad winter for them this winter!

I believe my friend would agree lol; but she's a trooper. Her snow stories are pretty funny going from here to there. 

DanaFromPennsylvania --- 7 years ago -

Yeah, there have been some snow horror stories out of the northeast this winter! Unfortunately I had 2 friends that were victims of the horrible weather+roads. 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

Oh wow. Sorry. 

The Paparazzi --- 7 years ago -

Plus I am going to miss the military community!

ya, thats the tough part... theres the navel war collage and base in Newport, RI.. not much bigger or better then here... make sure to check on holidays (I know for sure Mothers day is free) but the mansions sometimes have free weekends to go tour most of them (I grew up in Newport) also Bristol is a really cool historical area to go visit... they have the largest 4th of July parade in the nation there, the lines on the road are red, white and blue!

I am looking forward to getting to see the New England area & its history. Never made it more north than NYC. I'm sure in the 2-4 years we will be there we will be sure to check out all the surrounding states like RI! 

The Paparazzi --- 7 years ago -

we will be sure to check out all the surrounding states like RI!

thats the good thing about there.. you can get into like 5 different states within a few hours in any direction! LOL 

The Paparazzi --- 7 years ago -

my mom can get into Mass in about 20 minutes and Conn in about 30! LOL 

DanaFromPennsylvania --- 7 years ago -

Yeah that is pretty awesome. I have a friend from Hawaii who's husband is Navy and they're getting stationed in somewhere in CT and it would only take an hour and half to get there!

A lot nicer than having to drive an hour and half to get to just the closest mall in Palm Desert..!

A lot nicer than having to drive an hour and half to get to just the closest mall in Palm Desert..!

no doubt! Mass has 1 or 2 malls, conn has 1 or 2 and RI has 2 within like 5 miles of each other! LOL and you can get to NYC in a couple hours!

I am soo jealous you will love the area... if you are from RI.. you will def. be happy..
