LOL.. no thanks. My car will be tucked all snug in my garage while I'm gone.

I was only non-vol to Korea my first time. The other two times I volunteered... so I could stay in Germany

Korea is a pretty sweet deal now...you get paid lots of COLA.

Yeah, way better than Germany right now. The exchange rate sucks and they're not going to raise COLA "due to the lower amount of spendable income CONUS". What kind of bull is that?

A lot of BS in regards to COLA, but hey an extra $700 to shop with for single people is worth it. Wish I could be there for either a 335Ci or the new M3. H*ll, after school and an increase in salary, I will be able to get that and more. Lol.

True...I figured I could deliver pizzas and make more than the extra $1000 I'm getting this month for being extended in Iraq. Plus, I get to see my wife and daughter everyday and can drive my BMW.

Plus...free pizza!

But Korea was a lot of fun. I think the fun police have been cracking down hard.

My best night there involved lots of Soju and being lost in Seoul drunk off my ass. Lucky they didn't call an alert. Enuff said...what happens in Korea, stays in Korea.

I agree BigJae, I was in Germany for 7 years straight with 1/1 CAV and then the MEDDAC in Heidelberg. Did they offer you the bonus too, my CO was offered $25,000 for three for years of service. Not bad since she is done with her Command time. Staff jobs all the way!!

The bonus is not enough. From what I've seen, most of the officers that planned to get out didn't change their mind and get the bonus.

Most of the officers that have gotten the bonus, that I know, were staying in anyways.

ETSing FTW. There isn't enough cash for me to stay in right now, sitting at 1.5A. Load of crap
