Thanks much IJK3770 I just checked in and am thankful for your response. I am not sure what you mean by Dept ADJ. Is that local district? I really do feel it's the best way to transfer to avoid badmouthing from post to post. I do not owe my post any money, it's just that the time for me to part ways is at hand. I can still go back and visit.
Until I update my profile further I'll say here I'm a Shellback with 1 star via FMFPAC MEU's and lived and served at Kaneohe Bay
MCAS and 3rd Marines, known as 1st Marine Brigade.
Now it's called MCB Hawaii (Marine Corps Base) and I understand they host an Osprey squadron. When I was there they were still hosting F-4 Phantoms rather than F-18's. What a base that is....The rifle range is inside an ancient volcano that juts into the windward ocean.
Anyhow I'll search what 'Dept' means and thank you again for your response.
