  • It depends on what unit he will belong to. It may not be for 10yrs or it could be 6 months after he graduates basic and there schooling on what is job would be. Good Luck with yalls decision.

  • before the war you barely got deployed. but since then the military has been over extending active duty service so they rely on the guard and reserves a bit more now. if we are to withdraw from overseas, the chances for deployment will go down. jobs that get deployed often are: maintenance, supply & logistics, anything to do with weapons, engineers, power supply, etc.

    i suggest he join, while people are needed. you get better sign on bonuses... it also will depend on what job he does.

  • Hi there! The Air force is a very different branch than the Army or Marines, so just be aware of who you are getting your info from... him deploying depends on his job....
