I'm very sorry for the confusion. This is a scam. The person you're communicating with is not a special agent at all; they are criminal, located in Africa or Asia, pretending to be a US citizen. So there is no commander for them to ask to go home. Frankly, they are already home.
Now, for servicemembers deployed a broad their return is dictated by the schedule of the unit to which they are attached. Units rotate overseas together and return together. So an individual wanting to return home early, before his or her unit, would need special permission from their commander to do so. However, as I mentioned above, individual you're corresponding with is most certainly not a servicemember.
