I recently had to return early from a deployment in Africa becuase my wife was being investigated by the criminal investigation department aboard the air station where I work for Two counts of child neglect one of which was a attempted suicide, and one leaving one of my boys unattended in the vehicle, in addition she committed adultery, resulting in her being removed from Japan and sent home early without me. In addition she recieved a DUI this weekend. I am trying to figure out what I can do for to get my children during our year seperation and is it even possible? she currently has no job.

Yes, under these facts it is possible you can get custody and may even be likely. You will need to hire a lawyer and have him file for temporary orders. Of course, you have some things to overcome with being in a deployed status but with the current environment this may not count against you and might even help.
