TripAdvisor is for travel-related questions. I'd suggest for relocation questions that you use the City Data forums:
Chesterfield is close enough to Richmond that you'll get answers in the Richmond subforum.
this will be deleted soon, tripadvisor doesn't do relocation questions.
check out Fort Lee in Prince George county, and Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Administration hospital in south Richmond
