Is anyone's husband an Army Drill Sergeant?

My husband requested it, and we just found out that we got it. We want Ft. Jackson. Just wondering if you got to choose what you wanted or how that worked? Any other advice would be great also!

  • Not a Army, nor a drill sgt. but we were stationed at Shaw in Sumter for almost 6 years. We loved, and went to Ft. Jackson a lot. The area is amazing, and you have at least 2 other bases within 2 hours (Shaw, Charleston AFB). Close to the beach, Mtns, andmany things to do. Enjoy it!

  • Mine is! What's your DH's MOS? That might be something that factors into where you go. Mine is an MP, so we ended up here at Fort Leonard Wood. A friend's DH was in DS school and started a few weeks before mine did. They were supposed to PCS to Jackson, but went to Benning instead because they were able to switch with someone else. I wouldn't count on being able to do that though. The Army can always trump your wants with their needs!
