MOSs, Duty positions or units that have the least deployability?

Not interested in the typical tough guy response of "That's what the Army does, Deploy". I got it, I assure you I have done my time. Being that I would like to continue having my family along with the undeniable benefits the services provide, I need some kind of feasible solution. I know there is no such thing as a non-deployable MOS. The Army is meant to deploy, I am interested more in the reserve or AGR options that DO (contrary to popular belief) have units and opportunities that let guys chill out for a while rather than jumping from one fight to the next every few months, as my plight has been. I have run across the following acronyms, some I found, others I don't know what they mean. SDF, CAP, CGAUX, NOAA, USPHCC. Any info or opinions on those elements? I am looking at recruiting or retention duties as well, I know I'd hate the office job shit, but whats a few years in hell if I retire at 39. Rather that than get out and... do what? security?... I am only interested in real responses that are meant to be helpful, don't be presumptious of my circumstance or values. Thanks.

Don't know about Army, but in the Marines, we all had the basic MOS of 0300/bulletstopper. Even a cook or a ditch digger could be told to drop everything and pick up a rifle. Oh, wait...I know why: it's the MILITARY. - Stuart

join the marine corps, navy or airforce. they have shorter deployments. Try for recruiting duty, DS, or cadre. Those are non deployable jobs
