Malmstrom #1

Malmstrom AFB

We were stationed in Malmstrom for 6 years. The base is beautiful, housing is great, they have 4 wonderful new housing areas and they are in the process of demolishing the oldest housing soon. The houses are huge! I loved my unit, 3 bd, 2.5 baths, huge finished basement it was great. The BX is small but has the best deals Ive ever seen. The Commisary is excellent and quite big. I have no complaints whatsoever about any of the Military services on base; its like a BIG family. The people in Great Falls are the friendliest people I have ever met. The town is very small, but there is always something going on. The weather can be harsh during the winter months, but you have good 5-6 months of mild weather, which I loved because you see everyone out BBQing, riding bikes, doing sports, etc. It is so family oriented, my kids loved it. The schools are great too. Services off base are excellent, specially Medical. I do have to say that if you want to explore other cities it does take quite a drive to go to the nearest towns 1 1/2 hr to the Capital, Helena and about 3-4 hrs to Billings. Great falls has a small mall with about 45 stores, The Market Place with Barnes and Noble, Old Navy, Carmike cinemas.. and plenty of places to dine. Our family's favorite was a localy owned restaurant called Bert's n Ernies, the buffalo burger was the best!. The International Airport is like 10 minutes from base, its small but be prepared to pay a little extra $$ the fares are more like a regional. We keep talking about comming back to Great Falls to retire. Montana is beautiful in every way. We are in Goddfellow AFB, its not bad, but I am glad that its only for 6 months, then we are heading to Hurlburt Field...hope we like it there.
