Barracks on Okinawa
CONTRIBUTED BY HEATHER GELORMINE
I recently received the following email from a single soldier wondering about the on-base barracks. I looked through our archives and though we’ve got LOTS of posts about family housing on and off base, we’ve got very little about the single-member, barracks side of things.
I am an Army E5(P) and I am a MP currently in Iraq. I am due to come to Torii Station just shortly after I return from Iraq. How are the on base barracks for single E5 and E6 soldiers? Do they have to have a roommate or do they live alone, and can they reside off post? I see alot of posts about other bases in Okinawa but not many about the housing on Torii Station. I would love some insight so I can start planning my move.
Please help Gerard with any info you’ve got!!
