Id add to that by saying that theres no substitute to experience.... its tough being away from home is tough for sure... and life does not deal any cosey deals for the real soldier... but as the old saying goes, "when you enlist, you must soldier", so if your real and serious about being a soldier, think of deployment as an opportunity to gain valuable experience, and develop as a professional and as a person.. if it is hairy in deployment, its sure tough, but all you are doing is joining a breed of soldier thats experienced the same and gone before you... and when they get old, tell of the good and bad points of their experiences, and if asked would they do it different, if they had a choice.. answer is "No!".

Well I went into basic in march of 04 and got out of A.I.T. aug. 04 and and by oct 04 I was on my way to go to Iraq and I'm a reservist. If he active duty which make up 80% of the army over there I think, then he's more than likely going to go over. It may seem scary but he did join in a time of war and if you join now you have to expect to go over. Hope he is safe when not if he goes over.

That's great for me because i only live 30 minutes away. But everyone is telling me that if he gets stationed at Ft. Bragg that it won't be long before he gets deployed. I just need to know if this is false information or forreal.
It just depends... my hubby had to report to our post Sept 7th... and several units are leaving in Nov. We thought we were one of them, but apparently his group is WEIRD and is leaving mid June/July of 2008... that can change...

BASICALLY... it wouldn't be shocking if he deployed... it appears that IF someone goes overseas it averages 3 months after they get to their post... (as the earliest they would deploy as a newbie to the army.)

It will happen... eventually...
