    How long is the longest you have ever been at a duty station?
    When my dad was air force (back in the 80s lol) we moved every 2-4 years

    My dh is army & we have been here for 4 years in May.
    Just wondering when we'll get to escape GA lol

    We have no idea how long we're suppose to be here. Everyone in his unit tho has been here 6 years or longer which scares me.

    We're Navy. It rotates commands Sea, Shore, Sea, Shore. I think it goes 3yrs for sea. 4yrs for shore. - NOTE: depends on your job.* That's what's key, b/c that differs from job to job. It can be better/worse depending on your job.

    We were at Norfolk for 3 years & a couple months.

    I don't know how it is for everyone else's orders, but ours always had an "until date"
