First off I would like to say thank you for your service to our country I have the upmost respect for you and all of our men and women who are doing such an important job.
And I would like to
you to the forum.
Very good advise wax is an absolute necessity for a string and cables. I also assume you have a nice case for it to be stored in. If not I would suggest you at least go to Wal-Mart and purchase a cheap hard case, but if you can afford it get a nicer one from your local proshop. Then I would suggest you just slide it under your bed at home. Good luck and welcome again to the forum.
