Bestätigung des Datums, an dem Anspruch auf Rückkehr aus Übersee besteht
|Voraussichtliches Ende des Auslandseinsatzes|
"Ansprüche" auf irgendwas gibt es bei der AF schon mal gar nicht :)
DEROS bezeichnet das voraussichtliche Ende eines Auslandseinsatzes, wann ein Soldat frühestens wieder in den USA stationiert werden kann. In der Regel ist die Dauer eines Auslandseinsatzes von vorn herein festgeschrieben (9, 12, 18, 24 Monate usw).

|Reference: Date Estimated Return From Overseas (DEROS)|
DEFINITION OF DEROS:
DEROS is the date an employee is expected to return from overseas. DEROS is commonly referred to as "tour of duty". The Department of Defense (DoD) promotes establishment of assignments not to exceed 5 years in the overseas environment. Prior to final job offer, your DEROS will be established. DLA supports the DoD rotation policy. If an offer of a position would result in a DEROS that exceeds the DoD 5 year limitation, an approval from the Head of the Agency will be required.
HOW IS DEROS ESTABLISHED:
- For an initial assignment/appointment overseas:
Your initial DEROS is determined based on your tour of duty (i.e., 12, 18, 24, or 36 months)
- If you are already serving overseas (in an appropriated fund position):
The amount of time you have already served in the overseas area will be included in the establishment of your DEROS (i.e., your new position would normally have a 24 month tour of duty but because you have already served 40 months in the overseas area, your new tour would be limited to 20 months so you will not exceed the DoD five year limit for return from the overseas area).
- Exceptions to the five year rotation policy:
Those serving on excepted service appointments
When direct American troop involvement in Vietnam became a reality, military planners looked to previous war experiences to help alleviate the problem of psychological disorder in combat. By then it was an understood fact that those combatants with the most combat exposure suffered the highest incidence of breakdown. In Korea this knowledge resulted in use, to some extent, of a "point system." After accumulating so many points, an individual was rotated home, regardless of the progress of the war. This was further refined in Vietnam, the outcome being the DEROS (date of expected return from oversees) system. Every individual serving in Vietnam, except general officers, knew before leaving the United States when he or she was scheduled to return. The tour lasted 12 months for everyone except the Marines who, known for their one-upmanship, did a 13-month tour. DEROS promised the combatant a way out of the war other than a physical or psychological casualty (Kormos, 1978).
The advantages were clear: there would not be an endless period of protracted combat with the prospect of becoming a psychological casualty as the only hope for return to the United States without wounds. Rather, if a combatant could just hold together for the 12 or 13 months, he would be rotated to the United States; and, once home, he would leave the war far behind.
