Being a retired veteran and a mother I understand the hardships of trying to find child care. When I lived in the Parris Island, S.C. area the Naval hospital had child care in a separate building and it was mainly free. They would ask for donations if you could. It was great because if your spouse was not around to watch the kids and you didn't have regular daycare it could be difficult. There was a regular daycare on post but it was further away on the other side of town by about 10 miles.
