    I think it would be important to get them to a lender to see what their options would be and how much they could afford if they decide to proceed with a home purchase. A realtor should also explore and share current rental info.

They will need to consider this when deciding to buy or rent. Another option to explore is the use of one of their VA loans for the purchase of their next home. They should also analyze the rent vs buy calculation and the tax and equity leverage they may have.
