On overseas bases.

“Over the years, the real purposes of many of these overseas military bases has changed from tactical and strategic locations of military value to elaborate American housing and logistic installations away from home. They provide locations and facilities for some units that would have no reason for existence if based in the United States, and they furnish justification for interesting and attractive overseas travel and adventure for the troops and their families.” ~ James A. Donovan, Colonel USMC Ret., Militarism, U.S.A. [1970].
