I think the dream sheet is just a way too make people feel good in the off chance that you randomly get selected for a duty station and it happens to be one that was on your list. They obviously don't even look at them. It also makes people feel like they have a choice in the matter, when in all actuality they don't.
As far as Rucker as a duty station, it's actually great from what I hear. I have 3 friends that got stationed there out of flight school. They're flying their asses off. Not to mention, it's at Cairns do you're not even on post. Does Enterprise suck? Kind of, but that's the majority of Army bases. Sh*tty little towns that only thrive because of the military.
Other than Flatiron, I've also heard Med sucks as a first assignment. Especially the TDA ones. Thera a whole group of aviators that came to my unit as a second duty station from a med unit and they didn't even fly minimums.
But then again, I'm starting to realize that that's just Army Aviation if you're not deployed (or 160th). There's just no money. It sucks if you ever flew commercially in the private sector, especially as a CFI like Lindsey, where you are used to flying every day or almost every day. Makes me miss flight school!
I was only in Rucked for Flight School, but I never thought I would miss it. My wife didn't care for it either, until we got here in Riley. I can't wait to go to ALSE!! Plus I get to be saluted by all the WO1s lol
