In a recent interview with our CEO on the real estate picture over there, he said: “Well, I guess you could say that the occupancy could use some growth. It’s at about 0%. There are companies building various plants throughout the country, but the security for those facilities is immense, as it needs to be.”

We wish a safe return for both of them and all of the troops overseas.

    The top chains on bases that are over here, as you would imagine, McDonalds, Burger King and, of course, Starbucks. In fact, coffee shops with Wi-Fi access are always packed; they’re open usually 24 hours a day. The chains use local food in some cases, which can make a burger a little different experience…and they don’t have shakes in the desert environment!
    But we are extremely grateful to all the chains that are over here to give us a taste of home. I know of many people who drive through dangerous areas to get a Big Mac, fries and a Dairy Queen Blizzard once a month…
