    So here is my problem...twice I have reenlisted to go to Fort Hood; both times the following scenario happens: I report to Hood, nine weeks later I am in Iraq and upon redeployment I am on orders to another post. I know according to the Reg the Army has already fulfilled its obligation to me by getting me to Fort Hood; but where is the stabilization?!? They gave everyone an "option" to stay at Fort Hood or go to Carson but they still have me slated to go. WTF OVER!? I guess now short of contacting my branch manager (who never responded to any emails or phone calls) and filing two 4187's; my only option is trying to find someone in the Army times at Fort Hood (or Fort Sam or Polk) who is willing to trade posts. Carson anyone? E6 11B?:x::rl:

    Ft. Carson isn't so bad, I've been down there a few times. Colorado Springs is a nice little-big town with Denver and ski resorts like an hour away. Good luck!

    I know. I hear good things about Carson. Deal is, my wife and kids cannot leave Houston and they are not eligible for the EFM Program. Chance it and drop a recruiting packet?
     
  4. I would love to go to Carson, but I don't have kids or a wife. Good luck.

    There's always the nuclear option. :noes:

    Drop a note to your Congressman, stand back, watch the anger and chaos ensue while your chain of command scrambles to do the right thing.

    I was actually considering this....but these things usually do not turn out well. This would be a last resort for me seeing how I am getting my first look next month.
