Question About Assignment

My Marine has just finished basic training and School of Infantry. I'm not sure if one could be a Radio Telephone Operator in infantry, but if that's possible, it's most likely what he is. Is there any method to assigning privates (I'm assuming all infantry Marines start out as privates?) to battalions? And after he got his orders, how soon would he ship out? It's the late 90s, so I'm also wondering he'd be doing on deployment. (Would he even deploy anywhere?)

Thanks so much!
