    None.  They don't send everyone to war.  Sometimes they make you do something else and don't let you fight.  And sometimes there is no war during the time that you're in the army.

    All contracts are 8 years long.  At least 4 will be active duty.  Some jobs require 5 or 6 years .  You can go the entire time and never be deployed.  Or you could deploy every 18 months.   The first 2 years are spent in training and getting qualified, so it is rare to be deployed during then
