What's Fort Sill, OK like?

I've never been in the central, or western US whatsoever. I've only traveled up and down the East Coast. So what is Oklahoma like? Whats the weather, terrain, climate, population, attitude etc. ?

Even more specifically, what is Fort Sill like? I'm being stationed there for Basic and AIT as an Artillery guy. Thanks for the input!

We are stationed here, we PCSed here last year, my husband is a Training NCO on AIT side. In the summers its hot and dry...100- 117 degrees, its now starting to drop yesterday it was 103, but the rest of the week its going to be in the 90's. Around February we will get a winter ice storm, but that's about it. The winter temps are usually in the 40 - 60's. Fort Sill is a nice clean post. even though you will be training and probably hate it LOL. Make sure you go to the Wichita Mountains and see the wild buffalo, texas longhorns and prairie dogs that roam free there. Oklahoma City is an hour north of us and Wichita Falls Texas is an hour south. There are 2 super walmarts here and one small mall. The closest big mall that has best buy and stores like that in is up in OKC. My husband has been in the Army 16 years and we have lived all over the world...and I love Oklahoma, we bought a house here. Good Luck and if you have any more questions feel free to email me
