    I served in the US Air Force for 7 years, but was never stationed in Cuba. I work with people that were there. Last year, I had a job prospect as a contractor, was seriously considering it, but I didn’t want it bad enough I guess.

    You are living in a police state with a government that can grab you off the street and charge you with anything they want.

    Servus!! Weiss ich nicht fur alles die diving auf Cuba. Aber heir im GTMO ist gut. There is a lot of beginner type stuff, great for me, some big lobster auch gut fur mich :wink: and some cool things to see. Never got to learn to do this in Bamberg when I was there. Making the most of a dream here.

    Gotta agree, the whole 7th Cav area (Fulda Gap down to Nurnberg n Ansbach) was SOL regarding divable lakes. How did you ever end up in GITMO, since I assume that you were Army during your Warner Bks times?

    There were / are some nice spots a little bit to the east. You would have just had to cross the border.

    When did USA stop the folk from leaving GITMO?

    It was years ago that I was in Varadero but we met some guys on our hotel beach. I suppose that they could have been Canadian guys that were fibbing but hey, what do I know?

    So, has this always been a thing that the staff and crew on base aren't allowed out?
