Some Business

First of all, if it interests you, take the time to read this interesting and important article. It regards the rights of the military and their families to free speech as related to the recent happenings in Okinawa.

Also - military/DoD families, I implore you; the new Living Pattern/COLA survey is now online for us to take. It only comes around once every 3 years. Due to the fact that the current COLA pay is still the same amount (adjusted for yen rate) that it was 3 years ago, and that the survey results were not very good at all, we feel it's of the utmost importance that we have our empty-pocketed selves heard!

We're going to sit down with receipts in hand and fill this out in a detailed and honest fashion. I highly suggest you do the same. Please. The link for the survey is - it should only take about 30 minutes, and can be filled out one time by each family. More info from our email regarding the survey:
Before beginning the survey each participant will need to create a six character Ticket Number and be able to identify the locality code for Okinawa as JA027. The Ticket Number will be created by using the first and last name initials along with the last four digits of their Social Security Number.
