      Going by the specific section of the Act, there's no physical presence requirement on US soil for the USC's alien spouse to qualify for expedited naturalization - except during the interview and oath ceremony. Granting of course that the absence is due to the USC spouse being regularly stationed abroad working for the US firm or corporation recognized by the Attorney General in accordance with 319(b), a good faith intention to live in the US after such deployment, and all other regular naturalization qualifiers are met.

        Dear "Rough Neighbor":

        The only confusing clause in the act is :

        (2) At the time of examination on the application for naturalization, be present in the United States pursuant to a lawful admission for permanent residence;

        As long as the person appearing for the interview is a bonafide LPR and has not lost that status because of the extended absence, everything would be fine.

          As you did, that's how I would interpret the meaning of that clause myself.
