Is This Common?

So I finally heard from Nic late last night. He had just woken up after getting home from his first convoy/mission and told me he'd be leaving the following morning for another one. His squad leader made a joke that he was going to be the official convoy duty expert and told him that some of the men high up the chain of command said that he would be going on most, if not all, of the convoy missions. He's one of only 5 guys from his platoon leaving again so soon. I was just really curious as to whether or not this is normal? When he was in predeployment training in California, he would have two or three duty watches to a lot of people's one.

I'd appreciate hearing if this has happened for anyone else
