Both of you keep Puerto Rico as your "State of Residence".

As active duty military, you are considered to "Live" in your state of residence (Home of Record), no matter where you are stationed. Your active-duty pay is also considered to be earned in your state of residence.

Go to the bottom of the drop-down menu for State of Residence. You will see "Foreign or U.S. Possession".  That is what you should select for Puerto Rico.
