    I don't care. You are not taking away my future VA benefits with your claims. Mine is worse than yours.

    Imminent danger wasn't really an issue at the Deid when I was there in 05. Imminent annoyance on the other hand,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    1982 Mazda B2000, no A/C, drove it for 10 YEARS! Best $500 I ever spent, but that 2X60 A/C was rough at Tyndall, and Pope, and Eglin.

    If you've ever had a Turkish Chicken Donner with unrefrigerated, day-old mayonnaise on a 100 degree day, then you'd understand why need to keep IDP. Enough said.

    Why could they be in harms way? the "lik" is close enough to the Syria border region where all the refugees and "freedom fighters" have their camps. I believe the US also moved some Patriot batteries into SE Turkey. And don't forget about the Turkish Kurds - I'm not sure they are friendly towards the USA.

    I wouldn't call Turkey super dangerous per se, but it isn't puppies and kittens over there either.
    Any country people voluntarily visit for vacations should NOT be on the list.

    I agree. British people (and other Euros) are taking cheap flights to Turkey for their vacations with only minimal cautions from their home office (State Department). It's pretty much the same as Americans going to Mexico. There arent long lines for flights going to Iraq which is a shame since it is so rich in history, has beautiful women, and is on the fringe of being a culinary paradise.

    Next thing they need to cut is BAS for deployed personnel, just like before Clinton changed the rules. BAS is for the member, not their family. Member gets free food while deployed, so BAS is not justified.

    I hate the BAS scam. Just put the money in my base pay so I can collect the retirement off of it.
