5 Year Requirement to Obtain U.S. Citizenship for Military Spouse

Hey everyone, just had a quick question I'm hoping to find an answer for.  My wife is currently stationed with me overseas, so she's obviously not physically in the U.S. at the moment.  Being on orders here with me, will this affect her 5 year minimum stay requirement towards her obtaining U.S. citizenship?  We will be returning to the U.S. later this year.  I figured it wouldn't since her name was on the orders to reside overseas, but I would like a better piece of mind.  Thank you for your help!

Hi, it doesn’t affect her status at all. In fact she is eligible to file after three years of residency if you petitioned her. She is also eligible to file for expedited naturalization under 319 (b).

She is eligible for expedited naturalization under 319 (b). If she's a permanent resident, she can apply for naturalization right away, she doesn't have to wait 3 years. I've applied under 319 (b), so feel free to ask any questions. There were similar topics on VJ as well
