Peking_Duck_SD: the vast majority of military personnel, whether engaged in direct combat or not, still spend months on end away from their families. I believe that was one of the points Armywife101 was making. Those combat troops need a network of supporting personnel to carry out their mission, and those supporting personnel have to be there right next to, or right behind, the frontline troops for those months to years long deployment. Only a tiny fraction of military jobs (and none that I encountered in my decade of service) never leave their desk stateside.
