Questions for U.S. personnel who were/are stationed abroad.
I hope there is enuff of you lot on this message board.

I know that stores, sports facilites and all that stuff exist on U.S. military bases, so there is no real need for American military personnel to leave the base and interact with the local population much. But I'm assuming that most of you have left the base on occasions other than field exercises and transit to another U.S. base.

My questions are: First of all, which country/countries were you stationed in? How much do you leave the base to visit places in your host country and interact with locals? What is your impression of the region of the host country you're in? How do you like the populace? Do you have friends or partners among them? Are there some aspects of life in that country that are better/worse than life in the U.S?


I'm really interested in your views on this one.

I cannot help you on this issue. The only time I have been overseas was for Kosovo in 2000 and Iraq 2002-2003. Those places are not like Germany, Italy or Korea. I do here there is plenty of drinking for soldiers to do.

Yeah, I mainly meant stationed somewhere that doesn't involve any combat or peace-keeping duty.
