I have a lot of buddies in the Duce and your right they all say if you don't want to go airborne and want to stay a dirty leg you wont get anywhere in that unit. With that also being said if your not slated for a deployment right now your probably not going to be unless something happens at the last minute. They pretty much know which units are getting deployed till the pull out at 14. Plus if you go towards the end of that you'll just be on clean up duty getting crap ready to come back.
