I know this topic has been brought up before, but the answers always seem vague and cryptic (I understand that this is the nature of the beast), so I wanted to ask it again. I am considering the Navy HPSP, but I am a little concerned about the length of deployments. I have no problem being deployed, but on the other hand I don't want to spend three of my four year payback away from my wife and kid. What is a reasonable amount of time that I would probably be deployed? I know that it can vary greatly, but there has gotta be some time frame where more people fall than not. Any help would be most appreciated.
