  • Informed that his/her tour of duty is over.
  • Is there a debriefing process? if so, what is that like?
  • How is he/she brought home to the US? I mean, a commercial jet? Military plane? Navy ship?
  • Once back in the US, what happens? more debriefing? psychological check-up?
  • Would the process be different if a soldier returning back is leaving the military or just taking leave?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Just to be really picky, a Marine would never be called a soldier. Soldier is army and there is a huge rivalry between them. If anyone in your script calls him a soldier and gets away with it that'll go straight into the Goofs section of IMDB when your film gets released!

I wouldn't call it a huge rivalry. There's rivalry between all services but it usually stays within the limits of friendly banter and pranks.
