Carol advised me to add my name to the list for BOQ (on-base single housing). BOQ's were assigned by rank: whenever my name got close to the top of the list, officers ranking higher than me would transfer in and bump me down the list, lower than where I started in August. It took eight months for my name to reach the top of the list.
