I'm currently at my first duty station and looking for my next one. The most important deciding factor is that I'm trying to deploy, but of course I don't want to end up in a shitty unit with poor leadership. I'm leaning toward Campbell or Bragg, but I've heard mixed reviews of both. What are your thoughts?

The single best 1st Duty station for a new 11B or any 11 series MOS is where you are assigned.
Sure Alaska, Hawaii, Forts Bragg and Campbell would make great 1st duty stations. But what makes your first duty station a great place is you.

I'm actually shopping around for my second duty station. I'm mostly looking for a unit that is still deploying regularly and currently has a decent command climate.

CPL (Join to see) same with follow on assignments.
I was commissioned 7 Dec 1979. When got to IOBC the Chief of Staff spoke to us green ass 2LTs on Career enhancing Assignments.
He told us that all assignments were career enhancing. One Smart Ass stood and said that " Marrying your daughter would be Career Enhancing!" The Chief of Staff with out batting an eye, "You Loose; she's already Married!"
