What did you do when on leave from the combat zone?

Share some pictures of your leave when you served in OIF or OEF or other combat zones (Vietnam or Korea)?

I spent 18 days traveling through Germany, Italy, and Greece! Pictures attached

I took my wife to Switzerland. Geneva, Lucerne, Interlaken, Friebourg, Neuchatel, and Bern.

1SG (Join to see) Thanks for sharing - these are great photos I've been to Geneva as well in 1977 - 1980 when I was stationed in Europe.

I try and go visit places I deem to be pure and meaningful to me. Visiting islands, family, friends, and lost loved ones. All the pictures you see here are from Dec 2011 where I went to a funeral, to Puetro Rico and visited family in Kansas.

yes, getting back home to your real Assembly Area. I always liked the reception in Houston and I liked the good old days where they actually paid to fly you all the way home.

SMs are charged for their R&R flights now ? That sucks. Though, I'm not too surprised once I remember all the other financial decisions being made right now.

SGT (Join to see) I only had a few days to rest and see people then it was back to finding a new job. Resinged from my previous position and sold my equity in a company that I started before I deployed. It is a shame that the Service Members have to pay for their R&R now. Real shame!
