Yes, if your home state is your permanent, legal residence, you may file a resident state tax return for that State. Even if you will be away from that state for several years, it is considered your domicile if you plan to return to that state when your job is over.

Is this only the case if you work for your home state member, or can you qualify if you work for a federal agency if you plan to return to your home state afterward?
