It was early 2007 and our family (a soldier, a wife, and three boys) had just arrived on Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan. As far as moves go, this one was pretty seamless. The flights, although sleepless, were manageable enough. And thanks to the competent and friendly Housing staff, we were quickly placed in a nice home. Situated atop a beautiful hilltop with a bit of an ocean view, I was in heaven. Then, for good measure, all of our household goods arrived undamaged.
