Creating A Realistic E-Resume Comments Section I have reviewed the Command Checklist for Overseas Screening, the Financial Assessment Checklist and the Dependent Overseas Screening in Article 4.H. of the PERSMAN, and have verified that I meet the criteria for overseas assignment.My number one desire is to be stationed in Hawaii, so the first five billets are based on geographical preference. My second desire is to get an ATON assignment. So my next grouping of billets is by job type. I have ATON cutters listed first for career building and advancement requirements and would prefer going back afloat. I listed ATON ashore and other shore units last. Billet Picks 1 - 5 Hawaii Billets 6 - 18 Buoy Tenders 19 - 23 ANTS 24 – 30 Stations 31 – 60 Sectors, Stations, Large Cutters
