How long is left on our DH's orders to Korea? How long have you been there? How long is the recovery once out of the hospital expected to be, and what level of care are you expected to need? Your DH is still going to be in the military and thus is still going to need to be able to go to work and do his job every day. It that's not going to be possible and you truly can't do without his care, he might need to pursue a compassionate discharge instead.
All these things can be factors in the compassionate reassignment. Also, don't plan on getting to make your own list of possible assignments. Any CR that I've ever heard of (which admittedly is only a few) has involved the military looking to see where they have a facility that can perform the procedure (so plan on it being at a military hospital, though you never know) and where they have a job for your DH. It's not "places you are willing to go". Just like with any military assignment, you have to go where they send you. if the reassignment centers around a sick member of extended family or something where there is a specific location, it's a bit different. But if it is simply that you can't be where you currently are, they will send you to a place that works for the military. Since there's no other family in the picture, it isn't like you can say that thou need to be in X or Y location because you have other family to help care for you in those places. You just need a capable medical facility and a job for your DH. You an start researching where those are, but I'm pointing this out because the way the OP was worded makes is sound like you think you may have a significant say in the matter, and you may well not.
Army Enlisted Compassionate Reassignments
Soldiers may be considered for a compassionate action when they have
extreme Family problems. The two types of Compassionate Requests are
when personal problems are:
1. Temporary (resolvable within one year)
2. Not expected to be solved in one year
A compassionate action may be a request for reassignment, deletion,
deferment or permissive attachment based on the soldier's circumstances.
Criteria and supporting documentation for Compassionate Actions are
outlined in AR 614-200 Chapter 5.
ASSIGNMENTS UNDER EMERGENCY CONDITIONS
Attachment authority for the purpose of processing a compassionate action
has been centralized at HRC. Local commanders are required to request
compassionate attachment using the compassionate attachment function on
the Enlisted Distribution and Assignment System (EDAS). DA HRC will
respond via EDAS authorizing or denying attachment or requesting
clarification or further information. A point of contact and valid phone number
must be included in the request. Initial attachment to allow a Soldier to
gather documentation for a compassionate request will be limited to 10 days.
All subsequent periods of further attachment must be requested and
approved by DA HRC. A Soldier must be in a leave status to request
permissive attachment for compassionate reasons.
RESPONSE TO COMPASSIONATE ACTION REQUESTS
DA HRC will respond to compassionate requests via EDAS vice electronic
message. Processing of compassionate requests is normally completed
within 7-21 days. Soldiers should check with their S-1 for status of request.
Compassionate actions that involve medical issues will be reviewed by the
Office of the Surgeon General and a recommendation forwarded to DA HRC.
If the compassionate action pertains to a medical condition of the Soldier's
dependent, he/she should enroll in the Exceptional Family Member Program
(EFMP) or update the enrollment in the EFMP prior to forwarding the request
GENERAL COURT-MARTIALS CONVENING AUTHORITY (GCMA)
Only General Courts-Martial Convening Authorities (GCMA) can return a
compassionate reassignment request if they believe documentation is
insufficient. Otherwise, all requests will be forwarded to HRC for decision.
Soldiers are not authorized to submit more than one request for
reconsideration for the same or similar extreme Family problems.
MARRIED ARMY COUPLES PROGRAM (MACP)
When a Soldier enrolled in the MACP requests a compassionate action,
his/her spouse will receive automatic compassionate consideration unless
otherwise indicated in the remarks section of DA Form 3739, Application for
