-Ft Drum in NY might be the closest you could manage.
-You might check into getting custody during the summer and/or Christmas or whatever.
-Until you get promoted (to Sergeant or more: at least 2yrs or so..) you'd be stuck living in Barracks, which wouldn't allow you to keep your child overnight.
-You WOULD get 30days paid vacation per year, you could fly back to Maine for a few weeks.
