Military Monday: Amy- Osan AB, Korea
The Military Monday duty station feature on this blog is designed for us military families to meet our fellow military spouses and also to learn about duty stations across the world. We all get to (or have to depending on your outlook and particular set of circumstances), move every couple years to different duty stations that are scattered throughout the country and the world. This feature will allow us the opportunity to explore these different areas of the world before we get there.
If you are interested in being highlighted for this feature, please send me an email. (If you emailed me and never received the follow up email, email me again or check your spam folder as I have heard it gets lost there).
Name and blog site: Amy at My Beautiful, Crazy, Amazing Life http://www.mybeautifulcrazyamazinglife.blogspot.com
Branch of service: Air Force
Where currently stationed: Osan AB, Korea
How long have you been there?: A little over 2 months now, we will be here for 2 years.
Previous duty stations: Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson AZ
Favorite restaurant in the area: Our favorite restaurant would definitely have to be Pasta Vino, right off the main gate in the little shopping center there. It is a little hole in the wall place with amazing pasta dishes, something Iíd never have thought weíd find in Korea! We are not super adventurous eaters, so we tend to stick to the most ďAmerican-LikeĒ restaurants.
3 favorite things to do in your current city: We havenít been here very long, so we havenít see a lot, but so far our favorite things to do are travel as much as we can, even if itís just up the road to a Korean store or bakery. Our latest trip was to Seoul, and we loved it! Later this month we are going back and visiting one of the amusement parks here. Another thing we love to do is visit the food carts all around the city. They have delicious food, and every cart seems to have something different! Yaki Mandu is our favorite. One of my favorite things to do here is visit all the little boutiques and markets they have here. The Korean style is different from American style, but these boutiques have some of the cutest clothes ever, and they are so cheap! The markets are also fun to see, they are always crowded, but you can buy anything from seafood to meats, and even kitchen ware and clothing!
Favorite duty station so far: Although we do like Korea, we havenít been here long enough to think of it as our favorite station, so for now, I would have to say that Davis Monthan in Tucson AZ was our favorite!
Who is your hero? My hero is my dad. He has taught me so much, and I am like him in so many ways. I know he would do anything for me, and heís the strongest person I know.
What is the biggest draw back to where your current duty station? The biggest drawback for us is that we arenít allowed a car here (we are Non Command Sponsored, which means that my husband is stationed here, but we are not on his orders) so it is sometimes difficult to go places. We do utilize the bus system though, which is great! We hope to learn the subway and train system very soon, maybe this weekend!
How strong/ or not is the sense of community in the area? Since we live off base, our ďcommunityĒ is more with the Koreanís than the military. They are very friendly, and LOVE American children, so they are always playing with our son, giving him candy, and making him smile. There are so many times when we have just been walking down the road and a Korean lady will give us some fried pastries from her food cart (SO GOOD!!) or our neighbors will bring us fruit or doughnuts. There is virtually no crime here, so it is very safe, and you feel welcome where ever you go.
Are there any local festivals you have been to or are planning to attend? We havenít been to any yet, but I have heard of several festivals in the spring and summer time that are beautiful!
What is the overall feel of the community/area/base? The community is very kind towards us, and seems to make an attempt to really understand us. The base is very geared towards helping you feel comfortable and make you feel at home, as they have tons of American restaurants, as well as clubs and activities for everyone. My only qualm with the base is that some of the enlisted clubs have membership nights with free dinners that are not kid friendly, as well as the Community Center being off limits to kids on weekends. This can sometimes be a turn off since we do have one child and another on the way in 2 months.
Have you joined any groups on base? I recently started attending the MOPS group (Mothers of Preschoolers). It is held right off base, but everyone who attends it stationed here. It is nice to be able to connect with other moms, since we do live off base and it can be harder to meet people.
