    It should be a good job. You were picked for a good reason. Stick with it.

    Get ready to fill your pockets with Challenge Coins from him and all his buddies (other CSMs, COLs, Gen, etc.). Stay sharp and make sure the vehicle is GI'd daily.

    Always a good gig have a friend who is in the USAF and is the personal assistant to his base commander (Colonel). He has advanced very fast.

    Good deal, that can be a gig that makes or breaks you. I did some time in battalion headquarters. I didn't want to at first, but that was when I met the right people that helped me get what I wanted. Good luck, make the most out of it.

    Advice from a guy who's been in a similar spot:

    1. Maintain the vehicle of course, but keep those radios working. Chances are he hasn't had the time to learn them, so you need to be proficient..

    2. It's not your vehicle; don't redecorate it. Don't assume that you can install a TV, Playstation, mini fridge and haul a pantry full of snacks. Chances are your passenger will need to use that space.

    3. Don't wear his rank. It will bite you when you go back to the line.

    4. Do your best to keep up with your MOS training. A year away from the line is enough to make you forget a lot of stuff (one of the reasons I left the infantry)

    5. You still get to do all sorts of fun details at the TOC, like putting up tents and cammo nets.

    6. Customs and courtesies sometimes lapse when in close proximity to seniors. It can bite you when you get back to the line, or when you meet up with someone from another organization. Be vigilant about this.

    I really don't know if it's a career enhancer in the long run, but an honor none the less. Honestly, I'd rather stay on the line.
