My fiance has recently decided to join the Army and will be off to basic soon. We plan on getting married before AIT, and I most definitely want to go with him to his assigned post after training. His father, a Veteran, told us that the military would most likely not cover my housing and living expenses while he is a low rank. He mentioned command sponsorship?
Thanks in advance! And btw, marriedtothearmy.com is by far the most helpful and informative site I’ve come across. Amazing!
The military will cover housing with BAH while he is training (rank, zip code and dependent status determines the payment) if you are married. As long as you are married, BAH continues after training. He will also receive BAS (food allowance) after training is complete, if he married.
You will only need command sponsorship if he is assigned overseas. Hope this helps!
