stop, listen

first off: 6 years of active duty? or 3 years of active duty, and 3 years inactive?

If it's 6 years active, -don't- do it. why? simple, very simple, you don't know the military life just yet... start out smaller, because you always have re-enlistment, and generally re-elistment comes with a cash bonus $_$ cha-ching.

3 years active and 3 inactive though isnt so bad, I am 4 years active and 4 inactive, with just 2 more years to go til i get to go back to houston texas and do my thing as a cicilian ^_^ I am counting down the days... Man what I would give to be free again, living life without the high and tight haircut and the shaving every day...

Some occupational specialities require a 6 year contract because of schooling.

I hope to be stationed in Kadena AF Base or Osan AF Base. That would be ideal. But I know how that goes.

Hmm, I am not sure on that. I better find out. But from what I keep hearing with folks that are in the Air Force, they seem to love it and often stay in for a long time. But I believe it's 6 years active duty. ...I need to found out now to make sure.

Place blows. Plus they make you sleep overnight in that hotel, with no contact with anyone.

So I am assuming bringing a laptop to the hotel is out of the question?

The origin of the term squid is ambiguous. It is commonly said to be a contraction of squirrely and kid, or less commonly, squished and kid. a female rider who exhibits these characteristics is typically called a squirrel, for squirrely girl.

Squid is also described occasionally as an acronym, although these are likely backronyms.

Man, now I really hope I get stationed there! I keep hearing nothing but good things about Kadena AF Base and Osan AF Base.

I hope I don't end up in the base in Guam. For some reason, I don't think I am going to like it. If I don't get the 2 bases mentioned above, I would like to cross my fingers and hope Rammstein AF Base in Germany would be where they would put me. That way I can at least travel to all the other European countries while I am there.

Take care bro. My buddy in the Army got sent to Iraq last month early in December. He called me and was like "So yea, it happened. They are sending me to the sandbox."

I was like, "Whatever you need me to buy to send out to you let me know."

Take care bro. My buddy in the Army got sent to Iraq last month early in December. He called me and was like "So yea, it happened. They are sending me to the sandbox."

I was like, "Whatever you need me to buy to send out to you let me know."

I hit Guam twice, effin nice. Absolutely beautiful, and the golf course on base is frickin unbelievable.
Was at Kadena for about 4 months...........one of the best bases I have been on. The surrounding area is great too for shopping and night life. The locals are a lot nicer there than they are around other asian bases.

And as far as sending stuff to your buddy in Iraq...................during my tours in Iraq we got all kinds of care packages. They had baby wipes, cookies, crackers ,etc.........They were great to get and we loved them, but I started sending packages of my own to my buddies after I got out. I send them a package with a carton (or 2) of Marlboro Lights, a couple logs of dip (cope snuff and long cut), a couple bags of chew, and then I download some amature and burn them some DVD's and throw it all in a box with some baby whipes, lotion, and soft paper!!!! I am a to them!!!!

Man I spent a year at Camp Schwab (land of the hand), if it were not for Kadena and the local area we would have gone crazy. Don't know if it still is, but back then Schwab was strictly combat arms so not a female in sight despite the mamason cutting hair. We didn't get a very warm reception usually though, maybe it changed. We got denied service because we were Americans at a few restaurants and had picket lines in front of the main gate often. They didn't like us much.

I had a layover in Guam when I was otw to check in to Okinawa and it was so humid I thought I would die in Alphas. This was INSIDE the airport, don't think they had air conditioners there.

Yeah, Guam can get pretty effin humid........still good times to be had there....

Schwab was still lond-o-the-hand when I was around. That was 4 years ago. There are still the once a month on average picket lines out by the gates too...but, it was still a great frickin spot man. Gate 2 street!!!!! yeah!!!

Not sure, have to ask your Recruiter.


Guam was the shiznizzy...they had an awesome titty bar called The G Spot. We spent 4 days there and I only remember what I videotaped. LOTS of booze and chicks.

Kadena was the place to go if you wanted to hit up a 'mall'. The Exchange there was pretty big if I remember correctly. That and there was a bar there that was infamous for interservice fights. I was apart of a Navy vs. Marine that spilled out into the parking lot. MPs everywhere....good times. I was a big fan of the GATE 2 scene....bar after bar.


Personally, I dont care for Okinawa....good for Jungle Training/Survival and it has some AWESOME dive spots. But overall, not my bag.
