    Overseas for E-5 and above

    Advertisements
    I was wondering, what are the chances of being stationed overseas if your E-5 and above? The only people who seems to get overseas orders are E-4 and below. My husband is in the airforce and I really want him to go overseas again - I'm kinda missing home and Europe will be closer to my fam ...

    DH was over seas and E5 there are a lot of people that are E5 and above overseas cause when you think about it, they need higher ranked people overseas, things wouldn't function properly if it was only lower ranked people.

    We first moved to hawaii when I was an e3 and he was an e2. Then we moved back when DH was an e5. He is an e7 now and we are still overseas and are moving from hawaii to florida next year. He was offered Japan orders and we didn't take them.

    We know LOTS of families who are E-2, E-3s and E-4's who are overseas... DH was an E-4 when he first got overseas and well he's now an E-6 and still overseas, he's been overseas for 8 years and has 3 years now to Italy... Oh yeah... and his first overseas tour was from DM Lots of Jr NCOs and Sr NCOs though, you have a better chance if you put in for a long tour (4 years).

    It's the opposite for the Navy, they won't allow families E-3 and below overseas.
