I'm trying to look at different places for my DA 160 (the one with the wish list of 3 places we'd like to be stationed). My problem is that I'm trying to find some that my wife will be able to get a civilian job related to her MOS (cryptologic linguist - Arabic) that also have aviation units. I can find the locations that she can get jobs, but am having trouble finding a comprehensive site that shows where aviation units are located. Any advice?

Thanks,
Blake

Blake, I don't know if your looking at Army Aviation or National Guard Army Aviation? If it's the latter then we have an NGAA combat support unit here in St Paul, MN A female pilot from there was featured on the cover of the Parade magazene a week ago. the state university also has a liguistics program that your wife can check into.

hope this helps

fly safe

I'm looking for Active Army. I've been able to find a place that lists several National Guard units, but nothing that lists Active Army units. Thanks though.

Try globalsecurity.com they usually have a list of different units with certain airframes, however, i don't know about your wife's MOS.

Thanks again for the help. I was able to find some that will allow her to at least get a job related to her MOS.

Okay, I am a Chinook Crewchief, and WOC hopeful as well. I have read many forum through and through but never make any posts. Finally one I can answer on intelligently.

Being that I am a Hooker, I can only comment on Hooker locations.

CONUS:

Fort Hood, TX
Savannah, GA Hunter AAF
Fort Riley, KS
Fort Bragg, NC
Fort Drum, NY
Fort Campbell, KY
Fort Rucker, AL ( Im sure IPs and maybe MEs, MPs as well )
Fort Lewis, WA ( Task Force 160th SOAR - must complete tour in regular line unit first, be a Pilor in Command as well )

OCONUS:

Alaska
Hawaii
Germany
Korea<-----------Dependent Restricted for most enlisted, command sponsored with dependents for E-7 +, great place for a family.
Honduras
Sinai - Egypt <---Dependent Restricted for enlisted not sure about WOs


Blackhawks guys can go pretty much anywhere, with limitations of course. They have the most assignment opportunities for sure though. There also a lot more Blackhawks out there too.

Kiowas - NO CLUE

Alaska just got the 58 unit from Hawaii. So there is one place.

Apaches

From my understanding they have very few assignment locations as well

I know of:

Bragg
Campbell
Korea
Europe maybe
