Looks like I may be headed there.............. a good thing actually.
"Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008

Didn't serve there, only passed through on my way to points south, and even then it was so long ago as to render my observations almost certainly useless. Check out Lonely Planet for an overview of what living and working around Bishkek will be like (although, obviously, there will be differences for military folks).
Good luck in your assignment.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
