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)
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.
