I am stationed OCONUS and my DEROS is in DEC. I called my Assignment Manager yesterday to find out what was available for me. Much to my dismay I was told, 'there are no CONUS assignments that coincide with your DEROS'. My question, How is this possible? What am I supposed to do, stay here until an assignment 'opens up'? I am really confused on how this can happen. Can't the big Army manage their personnel any better than this? Since 2002, when my tour here is complete, I will have served 8+ years OCONUS. Anyone have any thoughts about this?
