My parents met in Japan. My dad was stationed there and my mom was there teaching on the base. They got married in Tokyo. I would love to take a trip to Japan someday. My cousin actually lives in Okinawa now. She's teaching over there too.

Never had the experience of being stationed overseas. My dad was a Lt. Col in the Air Force. Lived in Mississippi, Illinois, Florida and then here. He retired here. Looking at it now, we didn't have to move around that much. How about yourself? I Love Calexico, by the way.
