Lockdown Lifted...Sort of

The "lockdown" here in Okinawa (see previous post) has been reduced. Civilians and dependents (family of military members) now have absolutely no restrictions, and can go out in town as they please.

Military personnel can now enjoy off-base liberty until 2200 each night. A curfew is in effect from 2200-0500 each night. In addition, military personnel are not allowed to consume alcohol at off base establishments (with the exception of those residing in off base quarters).

This is a huge improvement, but still a bit restrictive, since many of us enjoy having a cold one at many of the local restaurants and Karaoke bars.

I'll take what I can get though.
