Thanks for serving. I spent 21 years in, retired in 2008.
In general, your personal residence is a terrible investment. You're focused on something you want vs. what would give you the best return for your money.
It looks like you're married with child(ren) so a four-plex would probably result in divorce or insanity. But you could certainly invest in a larger duplex that provides a comfortable home on one side and a nice rental on the other. When you move, you rent out the second side and cash-flow nicely.
I would consider selling your current home and kicking into multi-family.
