Currently deployed Afghanistan, last deployed 2 years prior to Iraq
Now ANC is deployed from 6-7 months (not including my pre-deployment training)
Current duty station Fort Bliss, been there ~ 4 years, due to PCS.
Deployment? Everyday is ground hog day, everyday is different. I have seen too much blood, too many deaths.
- 0Oct 4, '12 by jeckrnFirst deployment 15 months with the Army Reserves and last one 6 months with Regular Army. From what the Nurse Corp Branch has stated in Captains Career Course all Nurse deployments will be the length that unit is deployed if you are a PROFIS fill. For those who do not know PROFIS is the Armys way of filling slots in deploying units by pulling nurses from hospitals, clinics etc. Most deployments are now 9 months in length. As Athena has stated it is like groundhog day but everyday being different somehow.Last edit by jeckrn on Oct 4, '12
- 0Feb 12, '13 by double_minorityQuote from jeckrnThank you for detailing this.right now most deployments for active duty is 9 months and reserves is 12 months. Most reserves are on a 5 year cycle for deployments and active duty can deploy after being home for 1 year. As always subject to change based on the needs of the Army.
