Have you checked out the 2012 Basic Housing Allowance Rates for your State? They are not expected to budge much for 2013. Whether you're Enlisted, a Warrant Officer, an Officer, or Guard/Reserve, you can find out the current payout for each State here! Stay posted and feel free to leave a comment under my "Readers Respond," "Living in Military Family Housing or Living Off-Base - Which is Better?" If you have an opinion, please share! Do you feel your experience in the military is better living in the Barracks or off-base?
