    Highly dependent on your MOS, OP. There are places that you could never go to simply because that billet doesn't exist at that post.

        You aren't gonna be able to choose your first assignment unfortunately anon. 25b would probably be generic enough to go wherever, not certain with 25d though. That could restrict you to cyber units

            Its where they need you for the first duty station. After that you can talk to the HR and see what billets are open and try and get one your interested in for the next one. If you're on the end of your enlistment you can reenlist and request a specific place. for the most part there needs to be a spot the can place you based on your occupation

            Yes it's needs of the Army as far as your first duty station is concerned. Pretty sure they give you the opportunity to submit a "dream sheet" once you're out of school but don't expect anything out of it.

            The 25 series has some great availability for duty stations. That also unfortunately means the entirety of CONUS is wide open as well. If your first contract is at Bliss or something just rope now.

              You can fill it out in school but pretty sure it's just a placebo

      It fricking blows but it's not THAT bad. Austin is like an hourish away, weekend trips to Dallas or San Antonio. Polk or Drum is where I'd start shopping for rope.

    I'm considering applying to the USACE to see if I can work in Japan and experience like on (relative) easy mode there to decide if I want to move there permanently. Unfortunately, it seems like USACE Japan primarily does construction work so a controls tech like me wouldn't really be able to get a job there, at best I'd be a electrical grunt.

      If you can somehow swing a security clearance I'm assuming it would approve your odds.

        I think I could probably pass a sec clearance, but that doesn't mean they could use my skills. They need dudes to wire up buildings, not write PLC programs and replace VFDs.

        Wainwright has the highest suicide rate of any base. Elmendorf-Richardson is a different story though.

                What's the ratio like? I'm guessing the actual operators are 95% white, and support is 50/50?

                There's a good amount of latino sf

                >and support is 50/50?
                yeah I'd say so, although it varies. remember that support is the majority of the unit too

      Absolute fricking shit, every guy stuck there wants to neck himself (literally), everyone wants to transfer out, shit location, shit climate, total isolation.

      did a 3 week TDY at JBER when I was in the Navy

      They put us in these public housing looking barracks. That was whatever, nothing new in the military. But we were there in June (perfect weather, cool in the morning sunny in the afternoon) HOWEVER, the sun never fully set. From midnight to 4 AM was "sunset" but the sun never fully set. Then at 4 it would start rising again.

      Anchorage was whatever, they have this bar party district where we spent most of our free time. A lot of slam pigs, and during our arrival brief we were told "everyone here packs heat, don't frick around"

      I actually unironically went to Israel as part of the Juniper Cobra exercise years ago when I was in the Army. Wasn't a bad time tbqh but I remember having to pay for MWR trips to all the relevant spots (Jerusalem, Massada, Dead Sea etc). Fricking israelites.

    It will depend on what you do and the demand for your role in specific locations.

    You'll be more likely to land a total shithole post for a few years before you can transfer to a more desirable location.

    Join the navy if you want more interesting locations, and a shot at Hawaii for example, albeit it's quite rare to be sent there first hand.

    I do know a guy who was military police who managed to get posted in Hawaii after training was over but he was lucky.

    My friend was at Fort Irwin on his first post and told me it was hell, just the climate, location, and the low morale really took a toll on his mental health. Literally everyone there was just trying to get the frick out of there.

      >Join the navy if you want more interesting locations
      This. You will not have any choice on where you're going as junior enlisted in the Army. There probably won't be New Yorkers though. Most milgays are from the southern states and most Army bases are in shit locations like West Texas.
      Navy you have a good chance of San Diego, Hawaii or Japan. Worst case is like Black person City, Virginia or maybe some weapons depot in the middle of nowhere like China Lake but that's not super common and can be avoided with by trying to avoid certain MOS. Plus with the Navy you can actually learn a useful skill like avionics maintenance instead of being a dumbass trigger puller.
