Have you ever been to a deployed location or visited a sister service base and felt that they were treated better or had better resources than your branch?

My family and I have stayed at a few AF bases across the US while PSCing back and forth. The accommodations were always top notch. Army lodging isn't bad, but in my experience, that AF has it hands down. The Navy Exchange in Hawaii is the best exchange I have ever seen. I guess each has its own set of pros and cons.

On a lighter note, I dug up this old picture and thought I would toss it in here.

Felt? KNOW! I have been on at least one base for each service. I know for a fact that QOL on an Air Force base is 1000% better than QOL on a ship and at least 200% better than QOL living on a Navy base, especially for the enlisted side.

AF QOL is the best hands down. That said, the best DFAC I ever ate at was on ARCENT.

QOL is the reason all my Military family members (Army, Marine, and Navy) told me to go Blue!

I have been in the AF 16 years and have never once had steak and lobster at a DFAC. I was in the Marines for 6 years and would have steak and lobster at least once a year.

I don't eat lobster, but every DFAC I have been to has it at least once a quarter and when I was deployed, it was once a month.

As a Marine, on Okinawa, I used to go to the Kadena AFB chow hall every chance I had, the food there was like a 5 star restaurant compared to the crap the Corps fed us. I would eat from the street vendors outside of Camp Schwab before that chow hall....

And the nice ladies knew I appreciated it, because I said please and thank you...they heaped the food on the tray! Was awesome

1st Sgt Nolan, Lol! The food isn't that bad c'mon! One of the cool things that started happening after I got out of the corps was the chow hall started serving Metrix and other healthy alternative protein drinks, which I thought was a great idea to help Marines maintain a healthy life style.
