1/1 should get some ranges and training areas. They may lose quite a bit of common maintenance and log support (Army-Marine common stuff that can be fixed or kept up), otherwise the maintenance and log tail will divert to Air Force, Navy, or mainland Japan.

Leaders never know where, when or in what form the next war will be.

I have an old globe I like to look at now and again. Interesting to see everything in relationship to Taiwan. Guam is kinda' out there. Not as much fun for the Marines as Okie.

I believe that SF is a 'calling' - not too different from the calling missionaries I know received. I knew instantly that it was for me, and that I would do all I could to achieve it. Most others I know in SF experienced something similar. If, as you say, you HAVE searched and read, and you do not KNOW if this is the path for you --- it is not....

I doubt they will close Hansen which is where the majority of 1-1's ranges are located. The big focus is really Futenma which has protests almost everyday and a Brit wanker that likes to try and confront US personnel on his displeasure of US presence on Oki... I guess we'll see what happens. This topic has been engaged for a while. I heard about this back in 05 when on my first run out there.

I'll believe it when I see it, they've been saying this for years. Put a timetable up then we'll see what happens.
