One thing holds true above all others in the military: You can choose your branch, but you can’t choose your duty station. Duty assignments are a crapshoot, and there’s nothing anyone can do about a losing dice-roll except complain. So we asked you, our readers, to list off the worst duty stations for your service, and you didn’t disappoint. While 1,300 readers responded on Facebook, one branch was conspicuously mum when it came to shitty bases. Any guesses on which one it was?
For everyone else — Marine Corps, Army, Navy, and even the Coast Guard — these were the worst bases to be stationed at:
Marine Corps Base Twentynine Palms, California.
Forget “29 Stumps”: How about Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow, in the California desert?
Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
Fort F**king Stewart, Georgia.
Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak, Alaska. Bears, dude.
This shouldn’t apply to the Air Force.
