ah there was another pic that I was holding her but you couldnt see the uniform and I figured you guys didnt wanan see the luvy duby pic.

Everybodys telling me to wait but I think ive found a pretty good deal at a local dealer that we have dealt with for close to Id say 10 years. They always send us Christmas, Bday, New year cards and call all the time just to say hey. the vehicle is....

A 2006 Trailblazer SS, Oxford white with cloth interior, 2wd, 33000 miles for $15900 but sense were close to them we could prob cut a few off the price. The only thing that kinda questions me is that its missing the bowtie on the front grille and it has envoy wheels I bet sombody flebayed em before they traded/sold it. I belive a test drive/carfax should be in order and see if the dealer would track down a set of stock wheels for it to throw in.

I was pimpin' my Accord onbase as an E-2, three months out of boot camp.

That being said, when I got stationed in Japan, only E-5 and above with more than a year left on their orders could attain a car and drive it onbase.

It all depends on where you go and what the rules are at that particular base.

Oh yeah, I forgot. Look into who can drive.

Fortunately, when they say E-7's and above can have cars, that includes 2nd Lieutenants... Hurray for me!

Soon to be 1LT...
