  • deployments & training exercises vary. he could be gone anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 year, maybe even 18 months if his deployment gets extended. God bless your husband for his service to this country!

  • Depends on what he's going for.

    Basic is 9 weeks, then he needs to go to special training for his job. But he'll get a break between the two. Deployments tend to last 3 months for Airforce.

  • she's on crack. AF doesn't send them for only 3 months. Our (AF) guys get sent for no less than six months but no longer than one yr.

  • I'm not on crack. Typical air force deployments last three months. The air national guard in our city goes for no more than 6 months, usually three.
