info: USAF, O-2, Going to Manas, Kyrgyzstan, Working as a Wing Exec, leaving in less then a month. I hear this should be a good deployment, i'm looking forward to it. Few questions for you guys who know... -I was told i can't wear contacts over there from my eye doc. Wtf? -Anything i should get issued that isn't on my reporting instructions? (i'm trying to get some PT gear, b/c i hear that's the only thing other then ABUs i can wear) Is there Dry Cleaning available at Manas (if any one here has been there)? -Do officers wear rank on a Boonie hat? I can't find an AFI on it. -is there any reason at all to pack a set of blues? -Is there any social life while deployed, or is it just work. -Any worthwhile ideas to save/make money while i'm gone? Looking into the deployed savings plan (10%!), gonna cut my car insurance, and cell phone. -any other suggestions? I'd rather ask here to get more ideas of things to ask before i start hounding my gaining unit with questions. thanks.
