For more than a decade, the Stripes Annual Manual has helped military members settle into their new Pacific duty stations.
Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
U.S. service members and civilians in the Pacific have an up-to-date resource to help them acclimate and adjust to living in their host country — both inside and outside of their military base gates — with the new Stripes Annual Manual 2013, available in three editions: South Korea, Guam, and Japan.
The Stripes Annual Manual is an informative resource for all of the U.S. military community—especially for service members and their families who are just arriving in the Pacific theater. Oscar Johnson, editor of the 2013 Stripes Annual Manual, explains, "For more than a decade, the Stripes Annual Manual has helped military members settle into their new Pacific duty stations. The latest editions offer tips ranging from how to buy cars and make the most of local schools to exploring cultures and attractions outside the base gates."
The Stripes Annual Manual is slated for publication on August 16, 2013, and will be distributed at no cost inside the Stars and Stripes newspaper and at community centers, housing offices, and other military base locations across the Pacific region. In addition, the guide can be found online at stripes.com.
