Thank you all for your replies!
Old Guard, I realize now that I didn't clarify much in my OP. I just figured if I got somewhere, say Florida for example, that they'd fly me down instead of allowing time to take my car. I just don't want to burden my parents by leaving it in their driveway. I'm still paying for it so I want to be able to drive it when time permits.
I know I should've discussed this with my recruiter, but I like to leave him alone on the weekends... And I ship Tuesday.
I just want a 270' in D1 because I want to be stationed in Boston or Maine (actually, just New England in general). It has nothing to do with staying close to home either, those are just two places I feel like I would love to be at as a nonrate.
I know most of you would advise against it, and that I should see the rest of the country. I don't necessarily disagree, it's just my first choice, which I probably won't get anyway. And that's still fine with me. I joined knowing I could be put anywhere.
Thanks again for all the replies!
