Years ago There would be periods that lasted quite some time but they were at locations that didn't have internet or phones yet. So I would get snail mail letters and when he happened to be at another location, he would call.

More recent deployments - 30 days or so.

When I was younger I dated an active duty infantry man... We were together all through high school and planned on getting married when he came home. Sometimes I would go 2 months without contact and most of the time I would only get a letter.

Our first deployment was before email on submarines.  Two months without any contact at all.
