    Hey Mark, I Have spent 7 years total in the kuni throughout my 20 years in Marine Aviation. It,s not that bad a duty station, all the squadrons are on 6 month deployments from Conus so lots of new faces constantly. As far as the Seabees go i didn't have any contact with them, but they were always working on something around the base. there is a great gym, bowling alley, the clubs used to be good, but they have a new all ranks club that opened after I left the last time. I haven't been there since 1999, but it didn't change that much over the 20 years i went over there!!! I'll check back and try to help on questions you have!!!

    i was stationed out of Sasebo japan, but have been to iwakuni many many times. it is awesome, 1999-2003 era, go off base away from the military bars once in a while and mingle with the locals. the japanese are so nice, you will love it japan is like being on an entirely different planet
