Question Non-Deployable bases

I hear that there are bases where the soldiers cannot be deployed. Is that true? Where are they?

I think pretty much every base has some degree of deployment.

No its not true. Some bases may deploy less than others but thats about. If you DH is going to be a 68W I'm sure you can expect him to deploy.

Yup...very true. I know that here they are pulling medics from everywhere possible...cause they need them badly for Afghanistan.

The base is not the issue; it's the unit that the service member is assigned to. There are certain 'bases' which are better categorized as training facilities and those assigned to those training units there do not deploy. However, if your significant other is a combat medic I highly doubt he will be assigned to those 'bases'.

Oh yeah, he's going for medic, he will probably have one of the highest probablilities for deploying (sorry, but true)

Unfortunately even at training bases if the Army has a need they will yank the SM and attach them to a unit that needs that MOS.

Sure didn't have a problem taking mine from another unit...twice.

Medics don't have a chance, there's one way to be non-deployable as a medic and only a very, very small number of people are in that position and it requires a lot of experience.

Default Re: Non-Deployable bases

We were told Japan was "non-deployable" but that is not the reason we chose to come here. We wanted to experience the culture etc. Even though dh has not been to the sandbox, he has been everywhere all over Asia on deployments, sometimes 3 mos long, and he is usually gone like every other month for a few weeks..it sucks! So, no, there is no such thing...

There are ways to lower the odds (or so I hear) but chances are he will deploy and he may even end up preferring it that way. I really think there is a special connection between medics and other soldiers. There's a relationship there that most medics I've met seem to thrive on. Of course, DH was that sort of risk-taking, can handle any situation kind of guy in the first place. He thrives on adrenaline and makes the best decisions under extreme pressure that would have most people panicking. If it's an emergency, he can handle it. It's the small, mundane stuff that trips him up.

I'm going to say this and you're not going to believe me. I honestly feel that deployment was one of the best things that happened to us. It forced us to learn more about ourselves and each other. It forced us to appreciate so much more. I feel (no offense to anyone else) that deployment has made me a better Army wife. I feel like we've had the complete experience and I feel like I have a sense of pride in him that I wouldn't have had he not deployed. Okay, you can all call me crazy now.

Thats what happened to my husband. (He's a medical officer). They pulled him out of command of his unit and sent him to Iraq with an infantry unit.

Default Re: Non-Deployable bases

at times there are non-deployable positions but that is only for a short time. At Buckley AFB the military member at the Airmen and family Readiness center was non-deployable. However, after his 2 years in that position he had to move to a deployable position... You don't get to do your career non-deployable. And as others said - it is all about the base. My DH will be 6 on 6 off here in Italy until we leave with the 6 on almost guaranteed (very high ops tempo here) and he is an engineer...
There are also IA positions (Individual Augumentee sp?). Doug has done that 2x's where he is sent to fill positions from the AF with the Army or the Internationsl joint forces. So you are never "safe" from deployment.

We were non-deployable at Rucker while DH was in flight school, but that's because he wasn't thru the school and they couldn't exactly send him over there not knowing how to fly....

I know that at our clinics here on post the medics are non-deployable. We actually have many medics that have volunteered to deploy but they haven't sent them because they are so badly needed here on post. We are so short on healthcare here. But the European Army Medical team sent out an email saying if you haven't deployed you will be going next they are going to try to rotate some of the people who have had multiple tours.

I thought bases in Korea were non-deployable because technically they're already in a war zone. Or am I not understanding the issue?

unfortunately, i don't think there is any such thing as non deployable in the military. period. my hubs came to this new command thinking it was so, and not so much... he gets here, checks in and finds out he could possibly end up in iraq or afghanistan for 12-18 months so we are just waitin for that bomb to drop sweets, you will be ok

We have been in for six years, and deployed for half of that.

It is what it is. But it is no fun. You just have to make the best of it, and not dwell on the fact that more than likely...they will be gone soon.
