I spent 10 years in the army, 5 as an 11B in the 82nd Airborne and 5 in training or as an 18B/18E in the 5th Special Forces. I would still be in or just recently retired, but I was injured in a HALO accident.

I've been to Grenada, Puerto Rico, Panama (twice), Honduras, Turkey, Egypt, Kenya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Alaska (whether or not that's overseas is up to you).

P.S. I think that this is in the wrong forum.

Maybe you should have just skipped the smart ass class
I'm sure most if not all of us are fully aware what is and is not a country, some place's are just worth noting regardless of their status. For instance, Guam is a U.S. territory, not an independant country but worth mentioning since it's a 26x12 island in the middle of the Pacific.
