Duty wise it was probably Ft. Meade, Md. Culture wise it would have been Yokota, AB, Japan. Most interesting TDY would have been either Hahn, AB, Germany or Osan AB, Korea.

Far and away my favorite duty station had to be old Fort Ord, CA. It was just outside Monterey and it was beautiful. No problem finding something to do on the weekends either.

Only had 3:
Fort Jackson: Basic. No fun, too much sand, very cold, no sleep, yelling.
Fort Lee: AIT. Fun, tattoos, got to go OFF POST once or twice! WEEE!!
Fort Polk: Inbred paradise. Hot, humid, swampy, something in the water that makes people stupid and angry. Mike's Silver Needle does great tattoos, though. Anybody here do time at polk?

Hohenfels, Germany.

1. Strategically located 20 minutes from Nuernberg AND Regensburg (2 party cities)
2. Being OPFOR, you get COOL black uniforms.
3. LOTS of Field and Manuever time!
4. Very short learning curve.
5. Everyone is expected to work at one level higher than thier rank: E7's are responsible for company sized elements, E6's are responsible for platoon sized elements, E5's are vehicle commanders...etc...
6. ALWAYS something fun and interesting to do, work wise...
7. The unit has an UNLIMITED budget...free camel backs and Gerbers for everyone!
8. The unit launders and presses your uniforms free of charge.
9. Mess hall named the "Best in USAREUR" like nine years in a row.

YOU GOT FREE GERBERS?!?!?!
Crap, I had to (re)build my own truck(deuce, no less) and power tools, and YOU GOT FREE GERBERS?
I had to pillage DRMO for 1960s era machine tools and welding gear, and you... got... free.... gerbers.
I had to "liberate" expando van parts from the "graveyard of lost vehicles." Free gerbers.

I have only been stationed at 4 bases, but Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota was my fav, simply because I'm a mountain woman and I just fell in love with the Black Hills.
Other than that, I've been to Guam twice and I'd give anything to be actually stationed there.
