A) A distant friend of mine recently wanted to join the Navy. However, the Navy rejected him claiming he wouldn’t be able to support his family on a Navy salary! Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? (Ironically, he claims Navy’s salary would be an increase thus improving their situation.) And, why should the Navy even care?
B) So then, this same friend decided to join the Army. IIRC, he’s going through boot camp in TX and then specialized training in VA. If he lives on the base in VA, can his family live on the base with him? And if not, does the military supplement a soldier’s pay with a house allowance to help your family afford to live nearby?
C) And, what if he’s shipped overseas? If his family lives on base, can they remain living there? Or, if they get a house allowance, would it continue while he’s overseas? (Note: I assume there IS a house allowance - for those who cannot live on base, correct?)
