if I get deployed and all my income is non-taxable

Well, when I was deployed (Navy) my income was taxed and I could not figure out how to escape it!!! It was not considered foreign income and so did not fall under the exclusion. Dang the bad luck.

I think what OP is referring to is exclusion of combat zone pay. And I expect that most who are currently stationed in a combat zone would be happy to have the bad luck of being stationed elsewhere and having thier income fully taxable...
