How much warning/notice are you typically given when it comes to deployments? is it possible to have almost a years notice?

 Yes. This question was asked earlier in the week. Dh has had as little as 3 days notice and as much as a years notice.

depends on the branch/unit. Some have a years notice others have a day or two.  not really a cookie cutter answer to this one.

You can have a year notice, and then days before it is canceled. Always expect the unexpected.

I knew halfway through my husbands last deployment, that his unit would deploy again as soon as their dweel time is up.

Know that the unit is going, yes, exactly when.. Well the higher ups knew before the rest of the soldiers. They knew a month out when they were leaving since it was such a big brigade, they went in waves, so the sildiers knew a month before their wave was leaving

Sort of. They can tell you if"your name is on the list" as far as who is next to go, etc but it can also be pretty fluid because stuff happens, dates change, people PCS or get orders for various training or whatever. Some of my husband's have moved up as much as 4 months and I've also heard of some being cancelled at the last minute(never for us but for others) which also effects the list. This is all from an AF security forces perspective because that's what my hubs was doing at the time(he's a BMT instructor right now).
