It's hard to say. I don't think I'd go by what you're reading in the news. What does his commanding officer say about it? He might be able to give your DH a more realistic idea of what's going on over there.

When my brother was in Okinawa, he didn't come home at all. He was single at the time, though. I don't know if that would have made any kind of difference, though.

My BIL was in Guam a couple of years ago for about six months. His photos make it look like he was on a tropical vacation (though, he obviously wasn't). Guam turned out to be his favorite deployment, though. Now, he was (is) married with five kids at that time (now there are 7). He didn't get time off to return either. He went from Guam straight to Iraq.

My brother was a Marine stationed in Okinawa. He was only there for a year, but he really liked it there.

Where did you read the article about the troops being moved?
