Yes you have beaches but they look like shit (thanks to Katrina, I assume). Only about 1 out of every 300 women is not unattractive. Plus the water is brown and smells funny. The BX is a joke, as is the commessary -- and both of their prices are inflated compared to other AAFES, etc facilities. Back here at lovely Scott AFB, the milk is less than 1/2 the price it is at Keesler. The facilities are better. The cops don't ticket you for goin 25.5 in a 25. Not that the women are any better here, but I'm married it doesn't really matter. I will say, the pool is cheaper to get into at Keesler. Let me know when its fixed up and AAFES isn't being gay down there. However being in Illinois, there is no such thing as the second amendment, they ignore it. Maybe I'll PCS to Keesler someday. But then I'd be at an AETC base again - that would be punishment.
