Since finding out my branch last week, (third choice Active Duty MI, BD: IN), I know that I'll be at Ft Benning for a while (IBOLC, Ranger, Airborne) and then I'll go to my first unit. I've been trying to finalize my assignment preferences sheet and still have a few questions. How long are you typically at your first post? Out of the posts that have IN, which is the "best" overall? ( I know this is subjective) Should I be basing my decision more on post location (Beautiful Hawaii or Germany) or the actual unit (10th Mountain, 101st Airborne, etc) that I'll be going to? Would it be worth it to ADSO for post? I didn't have to for branch How long will I be at Ft Benning for? (IBOLC, Ranger, Airborne) if, God willing, I were to make it through without recycling? Also, because I'll be Infantry I've been trying to research more about light vs mechanized and it just seems like light humps more while mech does more vehicle maintenance, which seems pretty obvious. Anything else? Thanks for any input!
