This is from another thread, but it was kind of off topic, so I decided to start another one. I'm probably going Navy, but the Army is becoming more attractive due to the greater possibility of matching into one of the more competitive residencies (I'm still not 100% sure which specialty I want, so more options down the line would be good), so I'm curious about something: When I was choosing which branch to choose, the Army recruiter told me they have documented evidence that deployments can be no longer than 90 days. I tried to call BS, based on what I've read here on this site. So, what's the deal? Who's right? Any specific contradictory information? Sometimes I feel that the recruiters know less about what's going on than the rest of us and just regurgitate the information they receive without doing any research. Can anyone perhaps provide me specific evidence indicating otherwise? Perhaps a news story describing this happening to a medical officer? Any more concrete evidence either way would be great. Or even an anecdotal story, but it'd be better to have something more official. I'll do some more research on my own, but maybe one of you have some info? Thanks.
