My son has been on the GDub in Yoko, Japan for 3 years and he is ready to reinlist....he was thinking of Hawaii or San Diego....however Bahrain came up on the choices and everybody is telling him to go there.....He is seriously considering this and I am not thrilled with this idea....Everybody is telling him that he will make a lot of money, no taxes, nice housing, beautiful trips, etc....If your son or daughter is in Bahrain recently can you tell me their experience.....Thank you!
For up to date info I'll point you towards the N4M Bahrain Moms group: http://navyformoms.com/group/bahrainmoms
CryptoGirl did a year in Bahrain a while back. Can't say she was wild about it, but it was a good move career-wise. Generous BAH & BAS. I think the imminent danger pay has gone away because its so safe. Only real danger is the crazy traffic. I worried anyway, but as a 5th fleet spook she told me not to.
Thank you CryptoDad.....
Older son was there he said as bases in that area go it was pretty good.
