That sounds like it's a pretty good gig!  Too bad I don't meet many of those requirements, lol.

I would request that I be sent to fight ISIS.

 

I didn't sign up for this so I could vacation in the state of Washington..   That's just me though...  

 

 

Maybe if I was super into snowboarding or something I would request somewhere like Yakima..

Maybe if you were real you would grow a pair and actually join instead of just trolling the Internet.

In the process of applying right now and I'm about to go to selection - How long do most Warrant officers (on average) spend at each duty station before being reassigned?

I spent 5 years at my last duty station.  I would have been there longer if I didn't ask to leave.  Needs of the Army obviously but there are certain posts that seem to hold on to people a bit longer.

I've spent my whole 7 1/2 year career at Riley. The CAB is awesome, area not so much. So I can agree with buzzkill that some places (Bragg, Riley, Campbell) to name a few hold on to people. The term "black hole" comes to mind. ;)

ElJay. I'm stationed at belvoir, what you looking to know. Are we getting a new WOJG!?!?

The mission is similar to medicav being on call and we do a lot of VIP missions depending on the company you end up with. You'll find out more details when you get here but it's a pretty good gig. Average about 200 hours a year

I apologize if I was misleading haha. An article popped up during a search for elite army aviation units and I found it pretty interesting. I'm a National Guard guy so no chance of me ever getting that gig. Sounded neat, though.
