I recently heard you have to be at your duty station for 6 months before being deployed with your squadron, my sons set to go with the 55th to Iraq in april with only 4 months, what does this mean? will he go to bagram with another squadron instead two months later?

I know there's a six month down period after the completion of a short/long tour where you're not supposed to deploy, waiverable of course.

He will only be out of training for 4 months when they deploy.

Yeah, he can deploy. Not optimal, but it happens.
