I'll make the most of it. Just not looking forward to another three years in Kalifornia.
So sorry to hear! That was the reason I got out of the regular Army, I was in a Cohort Unit, 1st ID in Fort Riley KS, I would have had a choice of extending in FRK, Germany or Korea then back to Ft Riley. I swore I would never go there again and Ive kept that promise without much regret! Happiness was seeing FRK in my rear view mirror!

So my uniforms aren't the only ones to shrink in an odd manner? Good to know.

When I look back on the list of places I was stationed, the one I think of as the "worst assignment in my 21 years" isn't the one most people would think. That said, the old cliche' about an assignment being what you make it is mostly correct.

Hey, while being in SoCal does have it's downside, in the big picture, life could be much worse.

Very true. And I always try to keep that in mind. Also that every duty station is what I make of it.

Thanks again everyone.

Adak, AK was always said to be the hellhole where they send all the screwups from the Navy, after hearing this far too many times, I put it on my "dream sheet" and I got the assignment (1977-1978), I discovered that Adak had some of the finest fishing, hunting, hiking and other things to do I have ever seen.

I'm not a 2600 but I'm here in SoCal surrounded by them. I'm guessing I'll be seeing you soon?
