"Being stationed in Naples had its challenges. It wasn't a war zone by any means, but there were civil unrest and anti-American activities that required us to behave differently than we would have if we were living in the United States. Cars were checked for bombs when entering the base. I once drove off leaving my briefcase in the parking lot at the Military Housing apartments. When I returned home I discovered it had been blown up to ensure it wasn't a bomb. But the proudest moments during my time in the service was standing in front of the CTF67 Headquarters building when the flag was raised or lowered. Standing on foreign soil, hearing the national anthem, and thinking about why the United States has bases all over the world to protect and promote freedom made me very proud."
