    Does anyone know I can PCS to Ft. Hood. I'm trying to transfer from Ft. Wainwright to Ft. Hood. One of my buddies told me to fill out DA-4187. I don't want to stay in Alaska for 2 more years after I get back from Iraq. Chain of command = no deal, they aren't going to help me.

    Considering your chain of command would have to approve the transfer you are probably SOL if they won't help you.

    :nono: there are other ways, but require you to meet certain criteria.

    They can force a transfer, but you'd have to be desperately needed at ft. hood.

    I know I can do a swap, 11b for 11b, if someone at Ft. Hood wants to go to Alaska but I just need to find someone who's willing to do it. I'm trying to find other ways that I can get orders besides my chain of command.

    if you're 11b I would think your only option would be to do the swap.

    talk to your commander :dunno:

    Does Ft Hood have a net forum you could join where you could ask if anybody want to do a swap?

    I was out of the military when public use of the internet came around so I wouldn't know if there are Military Post Forums.

    Be ready to sell Fairbanks and the post. Is the hunting good, the fishing, the Fairbanks Motocross, the Goldpanners, the winter sports, the sled dog races, the climate :mamoru:

    I've been to Killeen, TX and the post, and well...

    I'm sure theres an 11B that would be happy to go anywhere but Ft Hood.

    Oh, that meant it was...average. It's near Austin though!

    I'm from East Texas and I like trees and Kileen has a lack of them.
