DOD employee living/working for US government overseas for all of 2018, do I select yes for earned income credit question about living in the US for more than 6 months?

Not sure if working for the US government overseas qualifies as still "living in the US" I don't have a US address, I have an APO.
This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

A U. S. government employee overseas is same as being in the U.S, so you answer it that way.

Just like the foreign income exclusion does not apply to you either.
