It seems that I've ran into a problem where as if I have recruits who I have permenantly stationed over in a country, I cannot send the person who resides in the first slot. Was that how it was intended or is this an issue?

I found a workaround by when everyone else is assigned, I toggle the unused recruit from out of the first slot, then put him back so that he or she is last, then I can assign it.

Please let me know if anyone else is experiencing this issue, and also what Console you are using.

I'm using XBOX 360.
