    Worst: Offutt...same weather as Minot. -35 degree wind chill, winds 60 mph, tornado's, hail storms, ice storms, blizzards and too darn top heavy...10,000 military, civilian and contractors with 36 generals, admirals and SES's between Strat-com, AF weather agency and 55th Wing. Nebraska is the 6th highest taxed state, and Omaha is approaching the highest crime rate in the country. 2 child porn arrests and 10 shootings this week.

    Nellis hands down! The base has several different Wings so it's hard to tell who is in charge. The Weapons School and Thunderbirds rule the base, everyone else is second place. .

    Las Vegas is a very dirty, high crime city. Crime is close to the Base and it's not unusual to hear gun fire from base housing. Traffic is insane, the track just makes it worse on race week. I won't even get into the Clark County school system, where illegal's have more rights than your kids will.

    Agreed! Plus on top of everything else already mentioned the base is getting overcrowded quickly. "Let's do a buildup and just stuff a whole bunch of bodies up there with no new infrastructure". The gym is usually overcrowded, but it is too new to build a new one. Housing is a mess (on and off base). Everybody's quality of life decreased when they come here. Stabilized tours are irrelevant, I'd say 80%+ of the people here stay AT LEAST 5 years once they get here anyway. I've never seen so many people try to do special duties, 365 tours and Korea like here LOL. No culture to experience (unless drinking and single parenthood is a culture) and if you're a minority you'll feel out of place off base. "The people are nice", the people have been nice everywhere I've lived or visited. Oh well, at least you'll go to school (out of sheer boredom) and playing ice hockey is cheap and mostly year round
