omg below zero all year? seriously? the news says that its gonna be around 50^F where i'll be at. so thats not too-too bad. but its gonna be a big change from the 90+ degree weather around here. actually, this summer hasnt been too hot where im at yet.

The Military pays you extra when your stationed i Alasaka. My dad said if he would of choosen to go there he'd of gotten somthing like 300 more a month. Apparently its not a popular place to live

I couldn't imagine why.

lol You also get paid more to be stationed overseas (like My Friend James who was stationed in Iraq, he made like.. 3 times my dads paycheck, and he makes QUITE a bit of cash haha)

Over 50? Eh, My stuff comes from talking to people that have been there, maybe the chill factor is below 0 or something

I know that... But this isn't "Overseas". ANd your Friend James was getting combat pay. Example in germany

My dad gets his paycheck
His rent is paid for (we live off base)
we get 400 euros a month for untilies
We get gas coupons (400 literes amonth I believe)
everything in europe is 16% cheaper next year it'll be 20%

But alaska isn't overseas is teh only station that is in america that you get paid a lot of extra cash to live in.
