My son is getting deployed to Nakabata (Camp Fugi) Japan.  He currently has an iPhone 11 with Verizon which I have heard is super expensive.  Does Google Fi work better in a situation like this?

The rates he'd get would depend on which plan he chose. Check out this page for more information on traveling with either Flexible or Unlimited plans:

I'm in the military, and as military members we get free coverage when stationed overseas/deployed! I'm currently in South Korea and it's working pretty well. He just needs to validate and confirm his orders, which he can do once he's signed up for Google Fi.

I can find no Google literature verifying that Google Fi offers free coverage to deployed military members.  That's not to say it's not available, but I cannot find any independent or authoritative source for that information.
 
The one thing Google Fi can do is make an exception to the Fi policy that the phone needs to be used primarily in the US. So if your son does switch to Fi before being deployed, he should contact Google Fi support to get that exception. Here are a couple of help articles on that topic:
 
If he/you contacts Fi support, he/you might ask whether there is any free coverage such as Caitlin mentioned, but I myself am unaware of this, nor can I find anything from Google substantiating it.
