    I think they hold that command for just a couple years, probably just time for a CoC, but you never know.

    Payback for the years in paradise.

    Funny, after 3 years in Hawaii my son said he's ready for a change, actually looking forward to Ft. Bragg. Bragg is probably a few notches above Ft. Knox though.

    I doubt this is a negative... chief of staff for northern command is in my mind a step up. Certainly going from Ft.
    Knox to Colorado Springs is a huge plus....

    I don't think anyone aspires to be the commander of cadet command. Although I would love to see a career map that has the target of cadet command CG. I distinctly remember telling one of my commanders I wanted to be a PMS. She said that is an assignment you get on your way to retirement.

    Logically, doesn't it make sense for the CG to have at least one or more PMS assignments? That's the equivalent of becoming a division commander without a company command.
