      Not sure the troops are going to be too thrilled.

              They've been there for years, and they like it. Same with the ones in western Ukraine, and there are a lot there as well, though not permanently like in Poland.

              The swath from the Baltics through Poland, Belarus, and Ukraine is pretty special. We now have troops in all of them... we're still working on Belarus! ;)

                Poland has all the positives of Germany without the negatives.

                Great beer, pretty blondes, tasty sausages, plus they HATE communism/socialism and they're good Catholics.

                  This thread needs some Polack jokes.
                  How do you keep a Polack in suspense?


                  I'll tell you tomorrow.

                      It's not so bad now. When the wall first came down, the "highway" that ran from Poznan to Frankfurt an der Oder/Berlin was a two lane, Soviet era schitshow of a road that was the most dangerous stretch of road in Europe. The EU fixed that, it's now a modern, four lane divided, very nice, true highway. The two countries that still have a fair amount of Soviet schitshow roads are Serbia and Ukraine (not in EU, but getting some EU money), but even they have gotten much, much better over the last 10-15 years. even 10 years ago, it could take you 9 hours to drive 400 kilometres in Ukraine.

                                  One other thing, not only are they HOT, but Polish women, and all other people who have recently escaped Marxism, LOVE freedom, capitalism, and Americans.

                                  this'll be a hell of an assignment for young, single dude.

                                    I have been all over Poland and it is a wonderful country. They have really embraced capitalism. The people are exceptionally friendly and helpful. They have left all the bullets, etc. in the buildings and have put up plaques stating "X number of Jews slaughtered by the Nazi" as they want to remember in order in order for it not to repeat. Warsaw was pretty much destroyed and there is but a small segment of the ghetto wall left. However, Krakow was left intact as the Nazi used it as their headquarters. A huge salt mine is near there and which was fabulous. The workers carved out a complete ballroom. And Auswitch concentration camp is not too far. There is, of course, a Catholic church on every corner. They are a very tolerant people and welcomed the Jews.

                                    Plus, they are not on the euro, but on the Polish Zloty and 1 US dollar = 3.76 Zloty. It was one of my less expensive European trips.

                                      The German in me wants to disagree...but if I had a choice about where to be stationed now? Poland...Estonia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia...for the reasons you mentioned.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
