    well I am not sure if I am answering this right and they are probably alot smarter women on here who can but I can answer the part about why its different each month. There arent the same number of days in each month so thats probably why its a little different. His LES probably shows the total BAS he is getting but then the meal deductions are just meals they are charging him for. I guess its like the BAS is the deposit and the meal deductions are withdrawals and whatever is leftover he gets to keep in his paycheck or something along those lines. I might be wrong but thats my best guess. LOL

    DH's is like that. How much they go to the dining hall determines how much will be deducted I believe.

    but they will deduct for meals even if they dont even eat in the galley or mess hall which I dont think they should do. I think they should only deduct it if they eat there.

    Well... This past month, his meal deduction was... $552.69 and his BAS was only $323.87

    I have NO Idea why the amount of his meal deductions would be so high for this month... unless he's been eating in there more often...


    Usually his meal deduction varies from 160-330... more or less but 552.69!? I'm so confused

    oh wow that is alot isnt it. Hmmm that is weird. I just called my DH to ask him if he could explain that one but hopefully maybe someone else who knows better than I do why that might be like that.

    ok my DH just called me back and said that it is possible for it to go over his normal amount so he has to be eating way more than what the army is alloting him for. You might want to ask him if he is eating way more than he usually does and if he isnt then it could be a typographical error and he needs to look into that.


    Hope that helps.
