My fiance just got to LS "A" school in meridian mississippi this saturday.. He is going to put florida and maryland and california on his dream sheet but he is on a drug waiver. Is it likely that he will get stationed overseas for his fisrt duty station. I mean i know it is very likely that he will get sea duty even if he requests shore duty.. but is it likely that they will station him in another country first ..we will be getting married as soon as we can while he is in A school..thank you if anyone can answer this for me any advice is appreciated
Every rate starts their sea/shore rotation with sea duty, shore duty can happen, but don't expect it.
If I am reading this regulation correctly, he will not get overseas orders. Unless they really, really want him, in which case his waiver would be waivered (unlikely).
