    What's your dream base, and where have you been?

    Advertisements
    I know it's been asked a thousand times before, but where would you go if you could, and where have you been?



    We've lived at:

    Hawaii
    Rota
    Bahrain (Unaccomp.)
    Yokosuka
    Sigonella


    Our dream locations:
    OCONUS: Yokosuka, Rota
    CONUS: Whidbey Island, WA, FL for DH.

    We've lived at Cannon AFB in NM and are currently at RAF Lakenheath.

    OCONUS: I think we would both probably pick Japan, possibly Italy.
    CONUS: Scott AFB in IL, so we could be near our families.

    Only place I've lived due to the army is Hawaii.

    DH has lived in Georgia, S. Carolina, Korea and Hawaii.

    I would've loved to live in Japan or Germany. That being said, DH gets out next year, so it's not going to happen....... and I'm a-OK with that

    So far we have only had Okinawa, Japan (this is his first base).

    We both are hoping for Germany next, but preferably Europe somewhere.

    DF has lived in a few places (England, Korea that I can recall off hand), but since we've only been together a couple of years, this was the first move for me. I used to think Germany would be my number 1 pick. After making friends here (finally!!!) and adjusting to this small town, I realized I really like it here (Mountain Home). I don't want to leave.

    But if I have to leave please please please let us get Vandenberg!

    Iceland. Sadly the Navy shut that base down a couple years ago

    OCONUS: Naples, Rota
    CONUS: Everette, WA (DH wants San Diego)


    Here in Virginia is our first base.

    Ramstein AB Germany
    Spangdahlem AB Germany
    Remote base in the Netherlands, Netherlands

    Anything overseas would be great, but those are our top 3.

    We don't have any CONUS bases we'd like to go to really. If we had to choose one we would choose Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson.

    I'd love if DH could get a special assignment to MacDill AFB, but its not on our regular base list.

    We’ve been to:
    Pensacola, FL
    Beeville, TX (long since closed down)
    Lemoore, CA (twice)
    Monterey, CA
    San Diego, CA
    Atsugi, Japan (twice)
    Virginia Beach, VA
    China Lake, CA
    Norfolk, VA
    Suffolk, VA
    Newport News, VA
    (we didn't move for all the VA duty stations)

    I would love to be stationed in Portugal. Or really anywhere in Europe.

    As far as I know, everyone left Keflavik in 2006.
