I am an Infantry Officer and currently assigned to a special troops bn. I am the only 11 series in the whole bn. I am currently the support plt PL, not the job i wanted. The special troops bn is also short on junior officers. As it is a privilege to lead, I have always wanted to lead a plt of Infantry. Currently there is a PL vacancy for the BDE CO Personal Security Detachment, I have yet to broach the subject with my Co CO and Bn CO. As I do not wish to burn bridges if denied. Does any senior officer with experience have any advice for me as to how to approach this topic of transfer.
Thanks for any advice
