I used to live there, still live close to it. I live east of Denver, Aurora area. Nice place, a little dry around to me, close to mountains. I was born in Denver so I like it a lot. LOL

I live right outside the base and have for 40 some years. Great place. I'm from Wellington KS, so you I know I wouldn't pull your leg. LOL

son found an apt..now we just have to pray that it is in the "right" part of town....Greensview apt homes it is called. We found it via the military housing office. Though he is not military he treated him like he was and gave him breaks on his deposits and such...he is super excited now and we are doing yard sales tomorrow to find a few more things....hoping they have great thrift stores in Aurora too!
I will be there Wed. night and would love to meet up with you local ladies say Friday maybe..he moves into the apt on Sat.

Yes, but its been awhile since I was there. It is in Aurora, CO I believe. Denver borders it and in some places, actually goes beyond it. The area has really grown so much, I cannot help with any hints. Will he be working at one of the hospitals that moved out to the old Fitzsimmons Army base? Maybe Childrens, Univ Of Denver, St. Anthony ( I think they moved there)? I don't remember anything at Buckley like that. Then again, it has been 10 years since we lived there. Good luck and have fun.
