I got to stay at an Airforce Base

My chicks dad was in the airforce so I got to go stay in an Airforce Inn at March AFB. It even had lots of portals, that were all green. This morning I went and killed them all. I went around in the car and added tons of new portals (in 6 months) with all these historical signs.
We got to stay in a 2 bedroom house, which were old office quarters. It was really nice. We had 2 houses. They were only about $50 a night. It really pays to be in the military, the benefits pay off the rest of your life (if you don't die). And if you want the best benefits, get the Medal of Honor (cake). Check out this.
Anyway, the base was pretty cool. I guess now it's a reserve base now so things were kinda run down in places. It was also interesting how I could just drive around all over no problem, except near the runway of course. There's this other really cool base in Arizona with all these planes on standby, stored for future usage. I also thought it was interesting how people just drove around in regular cars. Nothing special.

I was born on a military base and my dad retired when I was 16. You aren't kidding when you say there are some awesome benefits to being in the military. Besides the ones you mention, which are awesome, another is actually the insurance. USAA is the military auto/home/renter's insurance. My dad always told me that part of my inheritance was my right to continue on USAA (since they allow you to pass it on to your heirs even if they aren't in the military).
He said that if some other insurance salesmen were to call me up and offer me to tell me he had an unbeatable offer in auto insurance, I just had to tell them I had USAA, and usually they would just say 'alright' and wish you a good day, which has largely been true. I pay next to nothing for 2 cars (older cars, liability only) and at the end of the year they actually mail me back a check for whatever they didn't use for the year.

|I did 11 years in the AF. The pay was shit, the medical care was good, but aside from those things you can call compensation, the AF helped me grow up, taught me responsibility, and made me who I am today. Throw in the cool job I had (http://theaviationist.com/2013/02/26/boomer-kc135/) and the travel that went with it and you get a great overall experience. Sure there were some bad parts, but I learned from them.|
