Yes if our youngest was older than 2 when we arrived and our oldest was younger than 10 when we departed. - Dec 2014

Maybe. I'm glad we went and I have a lot of great memories, but it was also really hard at times. So much depends on the other people who happen to be at post that it's hard to anticipate what it will be like. If you can make local friends you'll definitely enjoy it more. We miss a lot of friends, but I'm not anxious to go back anytime soon. - Jul 2014
