For years, a diverse assignment history has been considered beneficial to the service and the member. Ideally, the Coast Guard would like members to experience different geographical locations throughout their careers. Although geographical diversity is still considered beneficial, the Coast Guard must find a way to provide geographical diversity at a lower cost. Currently, USCG officers are eligible for reassignment every three years for operational billets and every four years for staff billets. For AY13, the USCG decided to implement a more regional assignment process in order to reduce cost; we will be looking into how regional assignments will impact the professional development of USCG officers. The objective of this thesis is to find a balance between cost savings and the exposure that a junior officer must have in order to achieve the expertise needed for more senior positions later on in his or her career. We explore the impact distance between duty stations can have in assignments for United States Coast Guard junior officers using a combinatorial optimization method called the Hungarian algorithm.
