Can I deduct the total cost of 6 months storage for household items while deployed?

Yes, you can; storage fees during military deployment are tax deductible as moving expenses. 

TurboTax will ask you why you moved... the program doesn't distinguish between PCS orders and deployment - indicate that you are a member of the armed forces and moved due to PCS anyway - to enter storage expenses (see pic).
