    Well after my 3 weeks of relaxing leave I am boarding a flight from Dulles Intl. to Tokyo and then headed down to Okinawa for 24 months. What is in store for me and any helpful advice?

    I'm headed there around the middle of August. Be sure to update this thread with some of your successes and failures at adapting to life over there so I can repeat or avoid the same things.

    I lived on Kinser for 3.

    I enjoyed the time there.

    One of my buddies was stationed there, he said you either become a PT stud or an alcoholic.

    I thought we were giving the island back and sending all personnel to Guam or something?

    I was at Futenma for a year.

    Guam still doesn't have the infrastructure to support all those troops.

    Make sure you make a visit to Whisper Alley, go see the banana show, rape a teenage girl, and pass out in somebody's house. I think that about covers it.

    SCUBA, rock climbing, camping, good food, cool people, lots of stuff to do in a small place. You can have a great time exploring there.

    Or you can just wind up on gate 2 street and get wasted every night and buy prostitutes like 90% of the people who go there do.

    I can't wait to get back to Oki, getting cabin fever out here.

    I am on Futenma as well, part of MACS-4 ATC Det A.. After going through JRC the last one makes sense now. I knew of each of the other ones before landing on island. After being here roughly a week I can tell this place should be pretty fun..
