What about HITRON in particular?
I was stationed at HITRON from 2007-2009 as an AMT. HITRON members exist to deploy. If you are maintenance crew, then expect to deploy once or twice a year, about 30-60 days at a time. If you are a pilot or gunner, then you can expect being gone about 4-6 months throughout the year (not consecutively). I greatly enjoyed my time there. PM me if you have specific questions.
