Seriously, got any base intel to pass on to him?
Well 'hawks are stationed at practically every Army post... so if you're looking for diversity is possible assignment locations, the hawk is really the only option b/c the other three are very post limited.
I'm out of Campbell and I love it. I like the post, the mentality of the 101st, the surrounding community, the hawk community out of Campbell, etc... But when I get the opportunity to PCS (about a year after I redeploy home) I am seriously considering Alaska. I'd love to go to Fort Irwin and be apart of NTC, but my wife would kill herself in boredom!
Fort Eustis.... what a freakin' hell hole. The post itself is dumpy. Why the Army does aviation mechanic training there is beyond me, and the place is crawling with boat drivers. While you're there, you will here "Did you know the Army has more boats than the Navy"
so much, you'll want to take a letter opener to your ears. But, luckily the surrounding area isn't so bad. DC is close and so are the beaches down on the Virginia coast. AND
we use to go down to Norfolk and "hang out" with the navy girls. So life wasn't so bad while I was there.
Anyway: if he becomes a 67T (or whatever the current title is): it seems like the best place to go is Campbell, Hood or Bragg... simply because of the sheer size of the aviation units. Germany wouldn't be bad either - but for a post assignment that use to be very easy to get... it's now very HARD to get.
Your men have to follow your orders. They don't have to go to your funeral.
