    We usually pick together but if there are billets available that will help his career and its something he will like then those get first priority.

    We decide together. We start talking about the things that we want to have or absolutely do not want to have at the next place at least a year before choosing. Then when we get into the window we see what is available and go from there.

    we decide together based on me being in school and where he wants to live.

    We have always decided together. We won't have much choice this next time around since he has been told he will probably be IA before he is able to get his regular sea duty orders. Those options we have already discussed and he has looked at the billets available for his time frame, rate & rank, so he already knows what will be available...if he doesn't go IA.

    We normally decide together, but, normally, DH goes more with what I want.

    not all branches get a say, and not all jobs have a lot of options we are pretty limited in where we can go so its just a matter of the platform of the ship, and since he has to work on it, he can go to whatever ship is going to make him happy. we knew we wanted to come back to the east coast. that was huge for us. and didn't want FL and the only place for us is VA.
