Take the opportunity to deploy and use it to gain the flight hours you want and to gain new experience as a professional. You will have plenty of time to fly stateside, however the chance for deployment is quickly going away. You will gain much more than just flight hours while on a deployment. Regardless of the tour length.
I would never turn down a chance to deploy especially a short tour, if I was still able and eligible I would deploy in a heartbeat, I always loved going to new places and experiencing new people and cultures, it helps to round you more as a person and SM, at least in my opinion.
I would jump on it if I was in your shoes.
