How do I meet people in this somewhat unique situation? I know this has been addressed over and over, and all over google, but I like to think my situation is somewhat unique. It probably isnt!

I am essentially at a loss. I'm a 22 year old guy and frankly I feel lost.
Me: 22, no college education. Recently out of a relationship, which lasted 6+ years and all my friends are tied to essentially.
Great - so just go out and meet people, right? Not entirely. I work on a military base job-wise. My entire peer group there is easily 20+ years over me, all have families, etc - theyre at a different point in their life.
With that said, where I live is also basically on top of said military base, and well - in all honesty, there is not much of a social scene around here in my observation.
Any suggestions where to turn? I've tried to find dance classes, tried the two shitty bars we've got here, and tried to find people on meetup.com
Dont get me wrong, its not a small town either, but it is all military families and thats about it, leaving me in an awkward spot.
