Like you, I am very interested is hearing firt-hand accounts of those using TriCare in thier travels.
Cool, thanks for the link - it looks like it's possible - but may be limited to host nations and you have to pay first and get reimbursed later. That's a show stopper if you need major medical (heart attack etc..).

Looks like I'll be hanging out around Puerto Rico for a while.
