While you are entitled to have your opinion, please allow me to give you mine, based on my time working in a US Army unit and all my time working alongside US forces.
Free on-base housing, economic allowance for members living off-base, an exchange system that offers not only tax-free shopping for members and their families but , in alot of cases, beats downtown prices are things that make life better for military families. You will not find those things in the CF.
Ever been posted to a CF base in a remote location and needed , oh lets say, a pediatrician for your child ? Well when i was working in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, there were no such doctors in the nearby town. Guess what, the base hospital had at least one of most medical specialist that a family needed. Take one guess at how much support a CF military family in a remote location gets from a CF medical facility.
While i'm not prepared to say that life for a US military family is better that that of a CF family, i wouldnt say that "your life will be much better in the CF the US Army on a number of fronts family wise ".
