After a long wait, I will finally be commissioned as a first lieutenant in the Army JAG Corps and will be attending the 173rd JAOBC in early July. Today I received a list of potential assignments available to my class and must select my top 8 choices as soon as possible. Since there seem to be many knowledgeable soldiers and veterans who regularly post on this forum, I thought that it would be a good idea to solicit information and / or recommendations from those that have probably spent a lot of time at these various assignments. The following is the list of my available choices: Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD Fort Benning, GA Fort Bliss, TX Fort Bragg, NC Fort Campbell, KY Fort Drum, NY Europe Fort Gordon, GA Hawaii Fort Hood, TX Fort Huachuca, AZ Fort Irwin, CA Fort Knox, KY Korea Fort Leonard Wood, MO Fort Lewis, WA Fort Meade, MD Fort Polk, LA Fort Riley, KS Fort Rucker, AL Fort Sam Houston, TX Fort Sill, OK Fort Stewart, GA Fort Wainwright, AK We were informed that the top five requested assignments on this list are Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Europe, Hawaii, Fort Meade, and Fort Lewis. We were told that we may only select one of the top five and that it is by no means guaranteed that we will get assigned to our first choice. My present list of selection consists of 1. Europe, 2. Fort Huachuca, and 3. Fort Sam Houston. I have no clue which ones I should list as 4 through 8, or even whether I should change 1 through 3. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
