    Default Never been deployed?

    What percentage of USAF AD Enlisted have never deployed overseas?

    What's the percentage for those that make it to retirement?

    **In the past 25 years**

    Certain AFSCs don't deploy or have very few opportunities to deploy.

    My career field didn't deploy very much and it wasn't until my 20th year in that I deployed for 4 months to Croatia during the Balkans crisis.

    I think I know where your heads at. For every PJ, CCT, or loadmaster thats deploying every other six months there are plenty of other AFSCs that are basically home station type AFSCs or ones that have the whole force to chose from for very small deployable numbers like chaplains assistant or paralegal.

    I would think that this question would be more for those AFS's that do deploy--obviously, those that have their primary mission in garrison will not/will rarely deploy, and those who only have an expeditionary mission will deploy very frequently. However, there are those who fit into those AFS's that deploy regularly, yet they do not... I know some, always a new excuse. Injury, pregnancy, etc... and they've used the time to be President of Everything and Bake Sale Commanders to work their way up in rank, and they're the ones notified of tasking requirements, and they're the ones that fill those AFS/Skill level requirements with anyone other than themselves

    I went to Southern Watch in 2000-2001. 23 years and that was it. I volunteered out of cycle for Iraqi Freedom/Enduring Freedom but for one reason or another didn't deploy. I did do 2 tours to Korea though. When a base sends a maintenance package, damn near an entire squadron will deploy, but usually no more than 2 from my AFSC.

    I never deployed in 8 years.

    Most 5-level slots got filled by guys who sucked the most cock and were drinking buddies with the senior NCOs.

    I got moved to Staff once I got my 7-level, and Staff weenies don't deploy.

    The creed states that we're warriors, sentries and avengers. Impossible if you've never deployed. No 5 EPR if you don't fit the Creed's description of a 'real' Airman.

    They say its over 55% of the Active Duty AF has never deployed. Along AFSC lines it can be much higher.

    Since 1991 Ive spent 4 years in SW Asia and another 36 months total in Korea. I have some good friends in AETC and they have Never deployed, one has spent close to 20 years in San Antonio and has never been TDY save the SNCOA.
