In 1984, as a Corporal, I took my wife to Okinawa Japan on a 1-year unaccompanied tour right after we got married. It would probably have been fine except that she spent most of the money buying trinkets and gifts for her family in the states. The gifts didn't cost all that much, but the shipping sure did.

When I got back to the states all I had from my paycheck (which was the day that I flew back stateside, was a single 500-yen coin in my pocket.

If I had made her stay in the US instead of taking her to Japan, I would probably have save a couple thousand with little or no effort.

Join nearly 2 million former and current members of the US military, just like you.
