Do you guys travel a lot around the world in the military?not so much the world, but the country yeah. unless you get lucky and get stationed in japan, if you're going outside of the u.s. you ain't gonna like it.
I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. There were many US military bases on that island, more on the mainland, some in Korea, some in Thailand, some in the Phillipines. I know of bases in Germany, Italy, Sicily, the UK, all over Africa, and of course the middle east. Lets not forget that the Navy sends fleets damn near everywhere, and they all take marines attached to a MEU with them. The MEU on Oki does all of asia (and some years Australia), the one on the west coast does the other half of the pacific, and the one on the east coast does the entire mediterranean.
Also, I be out now. Glorious feeling.
