I was stationed in Diego Garcia for over a year. By far being my favorite duty assignment, there were only three Army personnel assigned to the island. This made life very nice. I had my own apartment. I was furnished a wide screen TV with a Bose home theater system, a Trek Mountain Bike and I was afforded the opportunity to go deep sea fishing once a month. I worked as a quality assurance evaluator on the support contract that maintained pre-positioned war stock.
