How long do you still have to go before your deployment is over? When are you going to buy these items? Reason I asked is for weathersealing. I would recommend the 17-55 but if your going to be buying it now and using it there, you would probably be better off with 24-70 or 24-105. Add a 70-200 to any of those 2 and your good to go. I believe on the 70-200, only the IS variants have weathersealing.

here is the link for the code for aafes if you wanna check it out before you buy.

24-105mm is the way to go. I got a 7D last week and it is so much better than if was on my T1i.

The EF-S 15-85 IS is an excellent lens and several hundred $$ cheaper than the 17-55 IS. Either of those and either a 70-200 L with IS, or else the new 70-300 f/4-f/5.6 L IS. For these lengths of telephotos I think you're going to want to have image stabilization.

However, the OP's stated budget suggests that the faster 17-55 lens is within his reach. I would also venture that the 17-55 might retain more of its original value over time. I do agree, however, that the wide focal range of the 15-85 is compelling and should be considered.

My 1st lens after the kit lens(18-55) was the EF 100 f/2.8 Macro USM. Winter was coming, so i wanted the macro for macro work in the basement, through the nasty weather. Excellent lens..a sweet prime! About a month later i bought the EF 70-200 f/4 IS USM. I love it, and with a pair of teleconverters, it's a super-versatile tele. About a year in, i bought the EF-S 15-85 IS USM, and love it too. It's neck and neck with the 17-55 f/2.8, yet a little cheaper, and sports a rockin' IS!! It's a near perfect walk-around lens! My bodies are an XS and a T2i.. hopefully trading them for a 7D soon. :)

On the Xti, it was a 10-22 :)

Haven't picked up a new lens for the T2i yet, the kit (18-135) is enough atm
