I have the option to go to fort Bragg or to Alaska? which station should I choose, I am a 25B. which would be more fun, less restricting(on leave), have more freedom to do things. I don't want to be at a unit that has nagging sergeants all the time or constantly having to do infantry work as a 25B. I don't mind PT or having to do PT standards like infantry men because I'm fit...I just don't want to have to do jobs like them. I want to be a 25B in a relaxed environment. haha I'm sure there is no avoiding motor pool Mondays so I don't care about that I just want to make the best decision here. Any advice would be great. I also hear people who have Bragg have little to no weekend times and you can lose your family being stationed there because of people saying work is never done. Please help.

"I don't want to be at a unit that has nagging sergeants all the time" You mean you don't want to be around NCO's doing their job?

Well young man, here's what you need to do.
Wherever the Army sends you, you need the set the ground rules with your Staff Sergeant just as soon as you get assigned to your new Duty Position. Let him know exactly where you stand on PT, performing maintenance on equipment and Senior NCO's.
If you don't start off on the right foot, the Army will grind you down and make you regret being born. It's much better for all involved if you let everyone around that you will not tolerate being pushed around and being taken advantage of.
You will thank me later for my advice.

He joined the Army to do his MOS and be in the Army on side, not do his MOS on the side after first being in the Army. The good news is, he is the person you want working on any system you have. The bad news is, he is not the person you want in your section. Maybe you can task him out to look over your things for his extra duty from that article 15 he got.

PFC (Join to see) Private, realize that there is an incredibly high possibility that someone from your current or future chain of command is watching you disrespect Field Grade Officers and Senior Non Commissioned Officers on this post. The army is small.

PFC (Join to see) - And you thought your "I don't want to be at a unit that has nagging sergeants all the time" was going to elicit anything helpful?
Here is the only tip I have for you and I'll leave you to your own resources, as I would not want to bother you with my nagging.

Dont trash talk the people you are asking for help from.
Best of luck to you.....If you would like, Id be happy to pass along your nagging concerns to the senior NCOs of the unit you end up at.

The answer you’re seeking is obvious!
You need to go to Fort Livingroom. That’s the only duty station where you’ll find what you’re seeking....

No one is hating, just speaking the truth... and with your attitude, anywhere you choose is going to have "NAGGING" SGT's.

I hope so because if he is real he is in for bog surprise when he gets to his unit, the stuff you say and do on SM stays out there.
