Congrats. to your hubby for making it into flight school (I presume). I am a military spouse in your same situation (short term duty station). We opted to live on post because we have a house in GA that we were unable to sell or rent. I agree with the other agents that Dothan is only 30 miles (North Side City Limits) from Fort Rucker and Dothan has much more to offer than Enterprise, Daleville or Ozark. However, your husband might not want to be that far from post during flight school (especially morning flight line times of 4 am). He will also have breaks in between class and flight line, so living closer to the Fort would allow him to come home.
Enterprise is fairly close and is a good size city. Recently the city has broken ground for the new Mall and is due to be completed in 2010. You will find plenty of Townhome in the area. These make for great rentals for the target market - flight students. The prices range from $70k - $120k. An older single family home at the right price might be a good option as well.
I hope this information provides some insight for your future relocation. I have highlighted some useful information regarding Fort Rucker and Enterprise areas on my website at www.MichelleSellsAlabama.com.
