Im in a pickle and im just trying to get some opinions voiced.
At this point in my career, putting in for a Station or ANT would be a good decision and make me go further in my career. Im a 2nd class that has all of my time on cutters. Ive got good stations and ANTS on my eresume and im ready to put them in.
I dont want to be at a station, I could do an ANT just fine i think, and picking another cutter would piss the detailer off. What i really want to do is try my hand at an MSST/MSRT specifically because it looks amazing and id love to be a part of that, plus the tactical coxswain letter etc.
What my real question is--as a Boatswains Mate, Would a pick like that put me behind in my career? Is it a dead end path to take? etc.
