How to use "Duty tour" in context?
When most people think of military service, they think of a few months of mandatory training followed by a few years of service. However, in some cases people are called to serve a longer time in the military. This is known as a "duty tour."
A duty tour can last for a year or more, and it is usually the case that people are given a choice about whether or not they want to serve on one. Duty tours can be interesting and rewarding, but they can also be very challenging. They can be so challenging, in fact, that some servicemembers choose not to serve on them.
