    I think I have a good grasp on this but was curious about the process.  Is there any communication with the detailer?  Do the recruits fill them out and put them in a box and wait to get an envelope ? Do they post the list for all to see and discuss?  And finally .... I have seen mention of people trading assignments - thank you

    I just graduated from BC... no you do not get to talk to the detailer... you fill it out really quick and pass it up. there is a little comment box that you can ask for like a small boat station. but be warned your company commanders will read all of the comments you write and will get on you for being a "Land Lover" so be wise when writing in that section

    I don't know if it would have made a difference in Colin's station and we never really thought about it before he left for boot camp... He is on a 270. He wants to be an OS. On his dream sheet, this was when you could put down specific units not just districts, he put 110's and 87's. Had he thought of it, maybe in the notes section he could have included something like "Have a desire to go OS, would like a smaller boat now since that will not be an option after A School." Would it have mattered? I can't say. But if you want to use the notes section maybe something a little more creative as to the reasoning other than "Because I know where all the happening bars are in that area" might get you something you want! It was just a thought we had, just a suggestion I'm throwing out there.

    But remember, wherever you go, enjoy it!! Who knows if you will ever go back there again and you don't want to miss out on an amazing opportunity to explore a new area because you didn't get exactly what you may have wanted. Also, nothing is more constant in the military than change. If you don't like your station, your shipmates, your command... someone will be transferring (you or them) and then you can move on to the next situation and it should get better!

    Great ..... thank you - I was wondering if there was any campaigning involved and if it becomes a popularity contest but from what I am getting is that the process really takes place in the back room.

    But every new command you go to has someone that usually knows somebody from your prior command so its pretty easy to find out if the guy  has a bad attitude. By talking to the person at your old command. this was actually a subject today at work lol

    Hmmmm, taking the advice of someone who is possibly bitter from a former station to gauge an incoming guy to his new station. Don't give the guy or gal the ability to prove or disprove themselves all on their own. I know I would rather hear from someone else what my feelings should be about someone. If that someone is a non-rate, 2nd class, warrant or new CO. I always base my impression on whatever other people tell me to think!

    That is a ridiculous statement, isn't it?!?! Just because you know someone is coming from a command that you have a friend in, decide for yourself. Listening to other people will only make your life shallow!

    Making the decision for yourself is the absolute best choice, personalities are all different.

    There are many instances where two people might be good friends and/or working peers, and maybe one is very good friends of the guy/gal the cannot stand...but had one told the other all about this persons bad attitude (according to their opinion) up front and tainted the others impression of him/her before ever getting to meet and know the person, that scuttlebutt may have caused the other person to already dismiss this person as a team player and or even a friend! Do not make snap or even long lasting judgments based on someone else’s opinion of a person, reserve that right for yourself. Sadly I see this to many times in the fire service…as an officer getting a new person assigned to my station I really make an effort to give them a clean slat and let them prove to me if they are good or bad, if I listened to the rumors or others impressions then he would be doomed before walking into the station.
    I want to finally set it free, So show me how to see what Your mercy sees, Help me now to give what You gave to me...Forgiveness, Forgiveness
