a new “tour of duty?”

“My first tour of duty here was a month,” said Michael Ziccardi, wildlife veterinarian, to Neil Conan, on Talk of the Nation.
Michael was reporting today, Monday, May 7, on efforts to rescue and clean birds, turtles and other animals  in the wake of the Gulf oil spill.
Wouldn’t it be great if we applied that phrase– tour of duty—  not only to military service, but to restorative service?
