Chap stick.... bring chapstick.
Gloves are always nice, stuff gets hot. Mechanics gloves, or the black/tan multi-purpose ones they sell at the BX/PX/NEX are fine.
If you have a favorite seasoning or spice you like on your food, like Lowery's Seasoning... You may want to bring a bottle. The food isn't always up to par.

Sunglasses, Sunglasses that you can put in a hard case when not in use. If you break them over here, they are not easy to replace. And forget finding quality stuff.
Have fun in your travels, good times.
