    for me it would be hard- since the CG has so many-

    but off the top of my head I would pick- anything in the carolinas- why? just because I love the south and I have never lived there.

    cape cod- or anything upper new england- I would love to live that far north for the season changes

    and boston- or Philly-- just cuz they are so steeped in our history.

    The thing that sucks, is you almost never get anything off the wish list, anyway. I can think of maybe one person I've met who has ever gotten their top choice.

    They're generally all pretty decent up there, it just depends on your preferences. WOuld you rather be in the country, or in the city? Etc.

    This website will help a lot :http://www.army.com/base_directory.html

    Pretty much, yeah. Pick places you would like, but don't count on getting any of them. If you do, you'll be pleasantly surprised! Just think of it as an adventure...military life is one big adventure!

    it depends cause we got our number 1 and my dh's detailer basicly asked him where he wanted to go. but he's an mk and there's a need for them and they want to make him happy cause normally an e4 doesn't get to choose crap but hope for the best but excpect what a little lower. hope all goes well

    for the CG- it is called a dream sheet- we can put from 1 to a hundred if we want- tho most put 8 or 10-

    when the members do their e resume ( dream sheet) they have to consider if they are qualified for the job first and for most- that the job is open and that they want the job they put on the list-

    then there is a priority status- from 1-5 one being the highest 5 being the lowest- and each job ( billet) has a priority,, overseas ( sand box) is a P1-- any one coming out of the sandbox- and meet the above criteria will get thier first pick.
    ( most cases)
    then land billets are a P5- and they get the left overs- some will get something on thier list but most do not.

    then it also depends on the rates ( MOS)- some rates are huge ( like MK) and some are very small ( GM's)
    so with size comes number of billets and the larger the rate the more billets available- making getting things high on your list problematic- but not impossible.

    ok there is your CG dream sheet lesson !!
    LOL I hope you enjoyed it!!! LOL
