I was wondering if you guys have had a stigma related to being at a certain base. I know that at Offutt AFB (Omaha, NE) we didn't seem to be much of a bother to the town, even though there were plenty of girls that were like "Oh, your in the military, bye" Here in Nashville, TN, the army (Ft Campbell) has developed a VERY negative stigma, to the point of not letting soliders into the clubs and other areas. The common view is that they are usually very rude and disorderly when they are out in public and seem to pick alot of fights. The stigma related to army wives is also in full force, I can back this up as I've been to a few clubs/bars out in Clarksville, the wives are out in full force. Chances are, if you ran into a semi-cute looking chick, her hubby was deployed with the 101st. Do you guys ever "forget" to mention you are military when you first talk to someone. I have before, and its funny to see the reactions when they said "Oh, confused look, etc.," some girls just seem to geniunely want to stay away from guys that are military, no amtter what service. Thoughts? Comments?
