    Question choice of station?

    Advertisements
    alright so my boyfriend is at bootcamp right now, and he's putting charleston down as the base he wants to be stationed at (you pick 3 right?) - charleston is where i go to college, and it's a pretty big east coast base if i'm not mistaken. his job is Intelligence Analyst. what are his chances of getting stationed in charleston?

    I really don't know how his chances will be. I think since he is in bootcamp his chances are smaller and they will just stick him where they need him. If they need him there then he might get there. I know for my DH he had choices and didn't get any of them which is why we are stuck in TX.

    The bases he can pick from are the ones who have his rating at. If Charleston has his rating and billeting (room for him), his chances should be okay. Hope he gets it so you can be close to him!!!

    DB said that the best trick is to put down three ships/boats that are at that base.

    just remember he won't know where he's going until he's in A school, so try not to get your hopes up.
