So, it turned out, before I left I had to have my orders corrected to reflect Yongsan, South Korea. Apparently it is an error in the system (Or it was in 2012 and appears to possibly still be).
I was stationed in Seoul at Yongsan Garrison (Area 2) and I brought my family with me and stayed for 2 years. It was a lot of fun, and we had a ton of fun. However there have been a lot of changes since I've been there, they did away with the off post military housing, and they went to just renting in the local area.
I cannot stress enough, please make sure you have your orders adjusted, amended, changed, whatever (I can't remember what the hell it's called) to reflect the proper assignment ASAP. I had to be an ass to a few people to get them to pull their head out of theirs and do some digging. Generally they just shrugged their shoulders and looked at me like the clueless knuckleheads they were without actually asking any questions.
Yep, it's still a glitch in the system. I called HRC and they said it's a QC problem with their computers. I figured they would have fixed it by now, guess not. I've been on assignment to Korea for almost 6 months now. That's where I was expecting to go and I'm ready to get it started. Although, I was slightly hopeful I would be PCSing to some tropical island.
