Where Do We Go Next?!

A few weeks ago Kyle had to submit his preference list for school locations once he is selected for promotion to Major (which should hopefully happen at the end of the year, fingers crossed). It is typical that after selected you go to an advanced school at Leavenworth. But there are circumstances where officers are selected to attend a similar course in a different location. 

This is how our list looks:

1. Fort Leavenworth, Kansas (Resident ILE)



2. Naval Command and Staff Course: Newport, RI.



3. Ireland Command and Staff Course



4. Australian Command and Staff Course



5. Singapore Command and Staff Course





Leavenworth is our first choice but I have been doing my research on all of these areas to prepare myself just in case. The school is only for a year and I keep thinking how cool it would be to experience another country for that time. 


Like I said we should find out about promotion in December and not long after that we will find out where our new home will be starting in July 2017. 

The adventure never gets old!

  1. My brother and sister in law lived in Singapore for 6 years. It's VERY VERY expensive, but they really enjoyed their time there

  2. I have never heard about any of those overseas opportunities! I've always said that I wished we could live overseas for one year (no more than that), but that's usually not possible. How incredible would that opportunity be to go to one of these places? I think all five are great. Everybody always loves Leavenworth. They say the sense of community is fabulous.

  4. Wow! How cool would living overseas be!? Even RI would be a cool place to go for a year. I wonder if my husband knows about all of those command and staff locations.... hmm.... :)

  5. Ooooo I would totally like Ireland, I think. But that would be a huge adjustment.

  7. If we make it that far in the military (it'd be about 18-24 months out I guess), we're looking at Kansas lol.
    Dublin would be lovely though!

  8. I will be living vicariously through you if you go to Kansas. I miss Kansas City so much, and Leavenworth is just a short drive from KC. Eric went to OCS in Newport, and it is gorgeous. Expensive, but gorgeous. Overseas would be a great experience. I figure if I have to endure moving every few years, I might as well experience another culture as well.

  9. Wow, those are some great choices! And such a variety. I do believe everyone should have an overseas experience. You will never regret and for one year is totally do-able!
