Which military base would you reccomend I visit with my family?
I found out that as a disabled veteran I can visit military bases and I wanted to plan it as a brief detour during a family vacation. I live in Indianapolis In. I have taken my family on vacations to Chicago IL, Detroit MI, Pennsylvania, Ohio, kentucky, Tennessee, New York. Florida
I want to go to Washington DC and Wisconsin in the future. I have a wife, 3 kids age 11, 10 and 10. Which base would you reccomend? Does it have a good MWR program?

As many/most promised benefits have been taken away from retirees, and the cost of housing is higher than similar properties in the community, I am afraid you may be surprised/disappointed with your plans to see and stay.

Hickam AFB has a wonderful MWR program.

If you have a VA disability rating (and a VHIC), YOU (not your family) can use the Commissary and Exchange. You (and maybe your family) can use some MWR facilities on base (basically the revenue generating ones--that does not include lodging).
Some bases have restricted access to the base to those newly eligible to just the disabled vet and not family members.
Seriously, you want to take your family to some random military base so that you can use their bowling alley?

You were told wrong. Many bases are closed unless you have business there/ are stationed there. You cannot use MWR services unless you are retired or on AD.
There’s nothing to do on most bases anyway. Hell, even here at NAS pensacola we are still barring visitors from the Lighthouse , Museum and cemetery.
