DoD Instruction 1338.1


Assignment of Public Quarters or Payment of Basic Allowance for Quarters to Members of the Uniformed Services


This Instruction contains changes that restate policy in regard to assignment of public quarters for members of the Uniformed Services or entitlement to the basic allowance for quarters. These changes are in consonance, where applicable, with the Supreme Court decision, Frontiero v. Richardson, May 14, 1973, which held as unconstitutional those provisions of sections 401 and 403 of Title 37, which provided for different treatment of the female member in the application of dependency criteria for purposes of entitlement to the basic allowance for quarters.
