My fave is Ft Campbell, Kentucky...without a doubt. Always first sir! 101st! Hooah!

Lewis was OK, I didn't like Yakima much though.

I visited quite a few state side posts and I still like Ft. Campbell is the best so far.

From what I have heard, Ft. Carson, CO is pretty darn good. I tried to get that when I went back active duty, but the Army gave me my 2nd choice of the 101st.

Heh, yeah he's daffy alright. Ft. Sill had a real nice officers club but not much else to crow about when I was there. Lawton was just bizarre. Like a 20th century Deadwood. I saw an honest-to-god gun fight on the street outside the bar there. Fortunately both participants were too drunk to hit anything. Most of the places I served at weren't much to write home about themselves but culture wise I actually liked Valcartier, Quebec the most. Quebec City is just magnificent. Rich history and very clean. Unlike Montreal, Americans were treated quite well by the Quebeçois. As long as you recognized their culture by doing simple things like saying "merci" instead of "thanks" you could get along very well. Really nice night life too.

I'll say Camp Pendelton Ca. Was my favorite a lot of field time and liberty wasn't bad.

The Worst. K-Bay Hawaii.

My favorite was Yeachon Korea. Was attached to a Korean Unit for a year, it was great. All field time, slept in a hardbacked GP Tent, liberty was good, the town was very accommodating and my Korean was not bad. The only drawback was the showers, had to go to the ville and to a bath house to get clean after a few weeks in the field.

Kapooka (Basic), outside Wagga Wagga N.S.W.... very hot, not very nice. A big ol' dust bowl..... so that'd be the worst

Keswick Barracks, Adelaide SA. Top barracks, I love it. Beautiful grounds, great lines, mess etc. A great mix of units on the barracks;
9th Field Hospital
10/27th Infantry
48th Field Battery Artillery
9 Brigade HQ
47/413th RCU
plus others I can't think of right now.
plus some navy and airforce units, but they don't have much to do with the army sections of the barracks.
