PCS orders and AIT

Hello all! My husband is still in AIT for a total of 20 weeks, and then returns back to benning for Airborn. Do you know when he will receive his FDS orders? He is in week 12 at AIT, and is done in 8 there. His airborn is roughly 3 weeks give or take. What is likely hood he will be deployed right after that? He is 25b and he is e-4. Thank you!
Original Post

On Family Day prior to graduating BCT, I logged onto AKO and ASK and put in my assignment preferences.

About 3 1/2 weeks later, while at AIT, we were given our assignment orders. My assignment was not on my preferences.

Moral of the story: The Army will put you where it needs you. While I am not 100% sure, I believe that preferences are not considered for a Soldier's first assignment.

Good Luck!
