Personal Post Insights

Knowing the ins and outs of life at post can make a difference in your bidding decisions and preparation for going abroad. Personal Post Insights (PPIs) provide anonymous feedback about life at post, including such topics as housing, schools, social life, shopping, family member employment and more.  PPIs are among the Overseas Briefing Center's most popular resources, featuring straightforward opinions.
