Department of Defense - Pacific Region for two years (Fall 1979 - Spring 1981) on the Air Force Base at Misawa, Japan. I applied for the job through the Department of Defense, and after ability testing, personal interviews, medical testing, and multiple vaccines, I found myself preparing for a two-year stint overseas. I had no choice over my placement.
During school holidays and extended weekends I travelled through Japan and Southeast Asia (Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia). Photos of my adventures overseas can be found by using the "Posted Topics" column on the right or by typing Foreign Friday in the search feature at the top of this page.
