We're a nation at war, if you don't want to deploy don't join the military, that's the reality of it.

No.

Unless you're a Dept. of the Army civilian.

The Army is a fighting force, every MOS, job, is required to either act in a combat role or support that combat role otherwise that MOS would be eliminated.

Didn't you watch ANY of the shows about 9/11 yesterday??!!

they probably gave "smart" answers because they know many people in many different jobs in the military who have more than likely all been deplayed or maybe even currently then someone comes and asks "is there a job where i dont have to go over there?" it touches a nerve, and no there are no jobs that guarantee that you wont get deployed but there are some jobs that may be considered less dangerous than others

Not to get personal because I don't know you but people on this site don't suffer fools & that was pretty foolish question, you have to admit.

I'm not knocking you but come on-don't you read the papers or watch any TV? There's a war going on & we're involved. The Navy has a good term for that - it's "an all-hands evolution".

By the way - all of the members of this site give "smart answers". If we don't know the answers to questions we don't respond.

In this war on terrorism there are even admin people going on patrols. First & foremost they're soldiers. Some will stick their neck out further than others. Special Forces, Rangers, Recon Marines, SEALs are some who do just that. Any Combat Arms soldier, mostly Infantry has a better chance of being in combat than say those who work in offices or commo or any admin joib but they're all soldiers & are needed on deployments. It's been said that it takes 100 soldiers to support one Infantryman. I don't know if I'd go that far but I hope you get my point. Nobody will send an Infantryman into combat without support whether it's food, pay, clothing, ammo, transportation, religion, artillery, air cover, on & on.

smart people give smart answers... besides you didn't say "reply yes or no"... On this board you get what you don't always ask for in addition to what you may need...
