    Confused Housing question....

    Advertisements
    Anyone know much about GMH? I don't... and we are trying to find out how this is going to work... so, most of you know my husband's situation and that he's waiting on his MedBoard process to get started up, which is going to take forever. Well, apparently they are moving him into some other barracks that are permanent party barracks. A friend of mine told me that the permanent party barracks on this base are now regulated by GMH and so then that would mean if he lived in them somehow we'd have to get 2 housing allowances. How would that work? I like 9 miles from the base, and I know that you can't get 2 housing allowances if you live withing 100 miles of each other, right? So, how are they going to get away with him living in single soldier quarters and I'm living 9 miles away and it will require 2 housing allowances? Is it even possible? I think their thing is they want him living on post and I live in town. Any ideas or info?

    Ask me about Down Syndrome... more common than you think...

    I honestly have not heard of two housing allowances. Hope someone can help.

    No, you'll get one housing allowance, based on the zipcode that he's stationed in, since you're not dual military.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    that's what I thought, so how can they make him live in single soldier barracks if GMH collects BAH for them and I have to have money to pay my rent? can they do that?

    yes they can make him pay to live in the barracks. it won't be a lot of money, but it will be some.

    We don't have any money left over as it is. He doesn't want to live in barracks, they are forcing him to! I just don't understand how they can force him to do somethin and then take what little money we have for it
