And whose army?

Last week I met a girl who said she was from Brazil, but she really wasn't from there her father worked on a base there. She worked for an aerospace company there before getting a scholar ship to study here in Japan. A few weeks ago I was talking with my co-workers, and we were talking about Okinawa as a vacation spot. Then they said, "Did you know there is a base in Aomori too?" No, I didn't.

No nationality or government was ever mentioned in these conversations. But some how I knew exactly whose army they where talking about. It's an interesting comment on our times isn't it?
