For me: Michigan, Japan, Arizonia, North Dakota, Florida, Oklahoma (same place but two different times), Turkey and four different areas of Texas (San Antonio (twice), Wichita Falls, Lubbock and Austin).

I was born and raised in Maryland and that's where I live now, but I went to college in New York City. I lived in Rome, Italy for a semester of college.

After graduating, I lived in Westchester County (NY), Hoboken NJ, the Upper East Side of Manhattan before moving back to Maryland. I moved to Hawaii for 6 months to be with my dh while he was stationed there with the Navy, then he got stationed back in Maryland and we have been here ever since (he is no longer in the Navy).

We will probably stay here for a long time, but since dh is originally from northern California, it's possible some day we might move there. But I'm an east coaster, so that would be a *hard* move for me.....

Because in 1980, that was what East German tank commanders used to communicate with other East Germans with regards to troop movements?

I dunno, I never asked *why*, I just revoked my volunteer status when I found out what the job really was. I don't take being lied to very well. They probably could have sold me on the romance of the lonely vigil in the cold German countryside if they'd tried. But I don't take being lied to well at all.

Clauswitz (sp?) said that there is only one thing that you can make a 19 year old do in the Army that you can't make a 30 year old do. You can make a 19 year old enjoy it.

But so much of military life is dependent on trusting one another and being lied to by people in authority just takes the shine off of that like nothing else.

My Dad is 63 and mom is 61. Dad lived in Canarsie (sp?). Not sure which section mom lived in. I have very vague memories (i was less than 5 years old) of visiting both sets in Brooklyn. I have a vague memory of a kiddie coaster at Coney Island (with my grandpa) and i remember not being allowed to play in the playground without plenty of supervision.

A few years later, my mom's parents moved to N. Miami Beach (isn't that where they ALL go, LOL!) and my dad's parents moved to Far Rockaway. When my paternal grandma died, that grandpa went down to live near his daughter (my aunt of course) in Ft. Lauderdale.
