    Thank you for taking your time to answer this one.

    Norway announced this week that 330 U.S. Marines will remain in the country until the end of 2018, a year longer than was originally planned. The U.S....

    Dunno if this is the right place, but I've read the rules and it didn't say anything against it.

    So, I've heard of this obscure program the Army has called the Army Enlisted Assignment Exchanges, where you can pretty much swap duty stations with another soldier of the same rank and mos. in my case, I'm a 68W E4 at Fort Carson looking to swap with some one at Fort Campbell. If you'd like to swap, or have any more info on this, I'd greatly appreciate if you got back to me.
