Each place has its unique good and bad points.
By far my personal favorite is Japan, spebt 3 years in a small base called Kami Seya in the late 90's.
Dgar...great fishing, fun hanging with the brits, mostly laid back...1 year..could go crazy, the saying is you come off DG as a Hunk, a chunk or a Drunk.
Bahrain..good money, lots of issues. We had guys come off of a 6 month tour with up to 30,000 usd in their pockets.
Okinawa, only spent a few months there. Not bad, good diving, lots of liberty restrictions.

Glad I didn't do Bahrain. Unbearably hot and humid even at night...Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer and thus any interpretation or statements about the law that I might make should be taken with a grain of salt and mixed with your own legal research as well as advice from actual legal counsel. I cannot be held responsible if you find yourself somebody's "friend" in federal, state, or local prison should you act on my opinions on the law. My interpretations of the law will generally be on the conservative side.
