Best duty station you had

Fort Carson (1st duty station), only one hour away from Denver CO (home)

Kaiserlautern Germany (2nd & final duty station) ETS'd from here and moved to Switzerland (I had a defense contracting job lined up before ETS).

Both were fantastic duty stations but I like Germany/Switzerland allot more.

Best duty was Permanent Party, Hdqrtrs Company at Ft. LeonardWood. REMFs had to look WAY over their shoulder to see me. :)

Lived in "inadequate officer quarters". Enlisted personnel could rent them for a song if we just cleaned and painted. Went from a WWII barracks to a two story townhome. Just a few short hours to Table Rock Lake for camping, boating, skiing and great parties. It helped that my in-laws lived in Springfield, MO. and had a cottage on Table Rock. Branson was just a good spot to put in the North Fork of the White River for float trips and camping!

This was all in the early '70s before Branson exploded.

I use to test Patriot systems there before I transferred to Germany. I hate NM so much.

Camp Stanley ROK 1980-82 with the 2nd ID, loved every minute
I did not have a problem with the army it was a good experience. My dilemma come down to: stay in and make 35k a year or get out with my education and MOS experience and make $250,000+ a year, I am loyal to my wallet.
