BRAC’d Couple Enjoying New Home in Alabama

Thanks to the Base Realignment and Closure Act, Chris and Carrie Arnold were forced to move themselves and their two young children from their 1,000 square foot Arlington condo to Huntsville, Alabama.

According to a local newspaper, the couple is glad they moved.

“It’s easier to breathe down here,” Chris Arnold told the Huntsville Times. “There’s more space, and it’s not that same kind of pressure on your chest as you have when you’re in a heavily populated area… D.C. was a concrete jungle.”

Arnold, who works for the Missile Defense Agency, says he’s also happy to live “somewhere that was more family-friendly, a place with a yard, a place where people wouldn’t look at you funny if you left work at 5 p.m.”
