How can I get my assignment orders changed?

I contacted my assignment manager twice via email requesting a my choices of a new duty station but they have not replied. I checked the system today and found out I am on order for FT Bragg which was neither of my choices. Is there anyway this can be fixed?

Wear it Right! Army Uniform Guide

Your assignment manager is provided assignments to fill and usually works hard to  fill them with Soldiers who desire those locations.  Unfortunately that is not always possible.

You might consider calling your assignment manager to see if they have some other options.

The bottom line is that they do not have to assign you in accordance with your choice.  They do the best they can!

If you choose to call your assignment manager be factual, professional, and polite.

Hope this helps!
