Yes, the average deployment length for someone in the army is a year. Just be supportive of him while visiting and things will go well. People don't need the added stress of their family and friends venting about their deployment while they are preparing to leave (something I've heard a lot of soldiers complain about).
You can also start planning what you might want to send him as a way to try and feel better about his leaving.
