Being stationed abroad is one of the best things that can happen to you if you look at it from the right perspective and have a good attitude.

This is exactly why "So You Got Stationed Overseas: Why you NEED to make travel a part of your short PCS abroad" is the perfect resource for anyone facing an upcoming PCS to Europe.

Don't let fears of the unknowns, different languages and foreign cultures keep you holed up inside your house. After all, with THAT kind of outlook- who wouldn't hate that duty station?
So, you got stationed overseas.
Which side of the camp are you going DECIDE to be in. Are you going to hate the next several years of your life missing the 24 hour conveniences of the US, mope about language barriers and complain about strange foods.
