What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Fine. It is a little dusty. It's a small city but there is still a lot of vehicle exhaust. The Marines say they can feel it when they go for runs. - Jul 27, 2013
