We were stationed at Eglin Air Force base from April 2011 - October 2012.  I LOVED IT!  We lived in Freeport about 45 minutes from base as we liked the small town feel.  There is something for everyone at this base whether you are single young married couple with/without kids and married with out kids at home.  By far my favorite base.  The community is very military friendly and they offer military discounts everywhere so be sure to ask as they do not advertise it.

Amy A. says: I'd love some first hand info on Eglin AFB as well as surrounding community and Elementary school recommendations (4th grade). We are looking at renting off-base arriving in January.
