Well there seem to be a lot of people who seem to have very helpful information about the different JAG programs, how to get in, etc. But I have a little different question. I was fortunate enough to get selected for the AF JAG summer program this summer and am trying to pick between three bases. I am looking for any advice on either Davis AFB in Tucson, HQ in DC (didn’t say the name) or Schriever AFB. They did say that I would have more exposure to the MCJ at Davis (apparently they are more “exciting”). The benefits of HQ are obvious in that I would get to work with higher ups in DC, however I would also be in one section, and not really get a sense of what being a base legal officer would entail (where I assume I will spend my first years). THe benefit of Shriever is simply its location - love hiking, being outdoors . . . and there mission is really cool - although most of it is probably to classified for me.
