camera/lens cleaning

Hello, I'm in the military and will soon have to go back to the "sand box". I want to take my camera (K20D) and some lenses, but the dust there is terrible. It gets in everything. I was wondering if you anyone had some good recommendations for places that will completely clean cameras and lenses. Or, would it be better to just bring the cheap point and shoot? Thanks!

I'd go for a P&S. You can get a Pentax "W" model which is pocketable and takes video. They are waterproof (which equates to dustproof in your case) and shock resistant. Great battery life too.
