What's your favorite base/deployment that you have been stationed at?
I am writing this post to ask all of you Marines, What is your favorite base you have been stationed at or your favorite place you have been deployed? Why did you like it? What is the Pros/Cons of that base? Where there any bases that you hated?
Thanks for your response,
P.S.- I know boot camp should be all of the poolees main focus. I just ask this question for fun and to see all of your opinions.

Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii. Beautiful scenery, great facilities, friendly people. Just a nice base in general.

Okinawa pre-May 15, 1972 (when we gave the island back to Japan) was my favorite, although I still liked it when I returned in 1974.
Other than Vietnam, I was not very excited about Camp Lejuene. Didn't have a car and there was nothing much to do close to the base. The good part was I only spent 11-months there.

MCAS Miramar, California.... loved my time there.
Great location, great scenery, and its close to all the attractions in Southern California.
I also liked MCAS Yuma in Arizona too.
