If someone told you that you're going on a six month deployment

I'd hesitate to believe them...

News here of the return of USS JASON DUNHAM (DDG 109) from its nine-month maiden voyage.  Nine months. This is happening more and more frequently, and average deployment lengths continue to creep up.
We either need a bigger fleet or fewer things to do.  Perhaps both. But not neither. 

Sadly...not happening anytime soon.
