Your Best Duty Station?

Your Best Duty Station?

Please for give me if this has already been covered but I could not find it if it was.

Mine was clearly South Korea-Land of the Morning Calm.

Cigarettes ten cents per pack, drinks fifteen cents each and a very exotic land to wander around in. I turned 21 years old sitting in the NCO club sipping a beverage.

I was stationed in a compound near North Korea in 1961-1962. People were seldom killed except by old ordnance left from combat.

Hmmm. Well it wasn't the Land of the Morning Calm! I was in Korea 1951 - 1952 in the 27th Inf. Regiment 25th ID. (Wolfhound!) They were still shooting at us in those days!

My favorite duty station was in Osaka, Japan 1948 - '49 while serving with the 25th Division Signal Company. I Served in the Occupation of Japan from JUN '47 to OCT '49 I learned to love Japan and its people.

ditto to schofield, so far away from the world, no polits ever came over for photos, or for paperwork in triplicate. most ops were squad sized , then platoon.

NOPE! I didnt forget Chapel Hill. I said Charlotte for three reasons,

1. 85% of the joes go to Raleigh. (Only town outside of Fayetteville that the women know the Army pay scale better than DFAS)

2. 10% of the joes are "smarter" and go to Chapel Hill

3. I have family in Hickory NC, so I have an inside line on the good bars, and no need to pay for a hotel or risk a DUI. (Not trying to say I am smarter than the rest of the good hearted joes of Bragg)

Camp Casey South Korea, 1966
I was a lucky man. I "volunteered" and ended up working on the rifle range. HHC7XTF which was Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 7th Inf. Div. Train Fire Committee.
Had it made. I was 19 and I was on R&R for 13 months.
I went to Nam after that with A troop, 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 25th Inf. Div. I was a replacement FNG. NOT a GOOD EXPERIENCE!!
Funniest part is I enlisted for "Armored Europe" as I wanted to chase all those German Fraulines around (with my last name being Schneider!!) Never got there...so much for those "army guarantees"
