Yuma takes some getting used to. However, in my opinion, the review mentioning black widows walking right into on-base homes and going grocery shopping somewhere the size of a walk-in closet is inaccurate - at least during the last 3-4 years. The commissary is not huge, but it's absolutely adequate. It's director is top-notch. We've lived in housing for several years, and the last few have been in a brand-new home. I never saw any bugs in my homes, save a few crickets that sneaked in the door after being badly drugged by the pest control applied outside by the housing office. The air station is really starting to look nice - given the new construction and maintenance. We did have an issue with a rude individual in the library, as well as top administration with MCCS, so I can't dispute the other writer's comments about such employees. Just show up to the staff club at happy hour (where lots of networking happens anyway) and complain to the head of MCCS in person. Here, it's good to get the lay of the land first, then make official complaints when things get absurd. Right now it's been a buyer's market here in Yuma, and there are houses available in the Foothills by the dozens. There's a new subdivision starting up called Belleza that's being built with nice floor plans that have been popular with a lot of the upper-middle-class set. The on-base Youth Center is great, new and full of good staff. That new facility even has it's own gym and a great summer camp. The new base housing has been built with plenty of playgrounds, bike paths, and residents-only access to a very nice clubhouse and private pool. Good luck in Yuma. When I came there, I had given up a full-time career and waited many months to find a comparable job. After wanting to go anywhere else for the first year, I ended up being sad to leave.
