Yeah, my dad is the same way.

These are cool because they are my first coins I got after swearing in.

People wont know I am the son of a commander if I don't tell them. It is as simple as that...

the af isnt that big, peolpe will see your last name and then ask if you are related to your dad, that is if you have a unique name that not everyone has. for graduations and things they should ask if you are related to any DV's so your dad may be considered a DV

Thats true. I'm not that worried about it. I have a very common last name, and my dad has never been stationed at McChord so its less likely people will say anything.

Congrats! You shall enjoy it. being a military brat helps a lot.. Just dont openly advertise it.. ever.. especially at basic. And do not mention your dad is a light bird. That will just cause hell.

But you will have fun, just be sure to be like every other Airman. Get to your base, marry the first girl you see, move out of the dorms and make the big bucks. then divorce her the following week.

You can't lose

Oh holy ****.. didnt even see you thar.. Im at Mountain Home. Are you at the ANG? or do you just commute to MH?

Idaho doesnt suck. I like it here. Well the valley sucks... get into the mountains up near McCall and Idaho is awesome.. We just happen to live on a desert plateau. Haha. The NW is awesome.. as long as you love the outdoors.

Yes, I have been there. I absolutely love it. Washington is a mixture of California and Alaska, both places i loved living at!

What surprise would I be in for? Utter happiness?
If so, you are correct!

I am at Gowen Field....yes I am a Guard person now.....still miss hanging out helo doors in the Coast Guard!!!! I LOVE IDAHO AND THE NW....I like to tell people its sucks so they don't move here and ruin it...see the link in my sig...I love the valley but love up north more. Its to bad that a ton of rich people bought up the land and have made it expensive to live up there. I want to kick them in their little sacks for doing just that. It makes it so native Idahoans like me can't afford it anymore. Oh well, when I get old I still want to retire in Stanley.

I was being sarcastic...see above....its great here and I even like McChord. Seattle has a ton to do in the city and even more to do outside the city. You have got the Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the San Juan Islands, and all those great mountains to explore, you will have a ton of fun as you already know.

Haha, Yeah I completely missed the sarcasm. I want to travel, but I wouldnt mind staying here either. I am from WA so I love Idaho. And yeah even up in Cour D' Alene the californians are all over the place.. But yeah.. It sucks. What sucks even more though is that I pay the same to live in Mountain Home as you pay to live in Boise.. I would love to live in Boise if I didnt have to make the trek out here every morning and evening.

I went TDY to the east coast last month and I absolutely hated it.. made me appreciate the NW so much more.

I don't like the east coast like I do Idaho...I just got back from training out there and the Guard unit I was training with really wants me to apply for an open full time job, very good paying one at that, but I don't want to leave! Mtn Home is good but it sucks, like you said, that it costs you just as much to live there as here in Boise....alot more to do here but a crappy commute!

I don't like the east coast much either. This is my second time here. The first time was 3 years in New Jersey, now its 2 here. Fortunately, I am leaving now.

Delaware is really nice actually. It is NOTHING like Washington though

I am going to miss the $2.99 gas though
