I'm a 35L in Korea right now looking to get a good assignment in the States, preferably in big city. Does anyone know where the 902nd has offices? I know they have a field office in Los Angeles, I just want to ask my branch manager for a specific assignment, assuming he won't provide locations voluntarily. I am also wondering if 35L are found at Air Force and Marine Corps bases.
i know theres one in Miami and Tampa, another one in ATL and Savannah. There should be many more around the country but those are the ones i know of because i was trying to get into one of them but i didn't have no luck.
So I've been accepted and in the email from SFC Mobley, I've been instructed to email back my 3 preferences for CONUS and 3 preferences for for OCONUS assignments. My question is, when I put these down, is he asking for an installation, or an actual unit that I prefer to be assigned to?
I wish there was some source of current, viable information for CI. I feel like what I've been told doesn't paint the right picture of what I will be doing. "What I was told" being business clothes, badge, investigating or conducting CI operations. That is with the understanding of doing normal soldier tasks and work, of course.

Like I said in your other thread, I think you have a more Hollywood picture of CI than you should, especially for a new 35L.
I agree with the warrant, who was one of my Soldiers before by the way...in a HUMINT/CI company in a FORSCOM unit, not a resident office.
I may not be a 35L, but in my 8 years or so as 35M, I have experienced the same basic things as what Mr. C is telling you. It almost seems as though the new CI agents are expected to "serve their time" for a lack of a better word in a FORSCOM unit before being assigned to a resident office.
Again, you could always contact branch and see what they say. But realistically you are going to go where the Army needs you. And I can tell you that before we even deploy, for example, I will be short about 4-5 CI agents in my platoon per the MTOE, whereas the 902d office at my location has most of the positions staffed, from my understanding.
