5 Years in the Army by the Numbers
As of June 2009 I will have been on Active Duty as an officer for 5 years here are a few of the stats.
5 years=60 months
Deployed: 30 months (50%)
School: 11 months (18%)
Field: 7 months (12%) (preparing to deploy)
At home in garrison with unit: 12 months (20%) (preparing to deploy)
My career has been schoolhouse, prepare to deploy, deploy, schoolhouse, prepare to deploy, deploy, schoolhouse (July 2009)...
It's beginning to get monotonous.
