If a soldier is injured overseas in battle, loses limbs, does the military pay their housing for the rest of their life?

Does anyone know? How are they compensated?

  • Disability is based on the injury and his rank, and he will get it for the rest of his life. My DH is already guaranteed a disability check due to his job. I think it also goes on how many years he had in the service.

  • I don't know for a fact but I assume not by how shitty they treat our vets. A lot of homeless people once served our country and were injured in some way.

  • I know someone who is a disabled vet. He doesn't have to pay property taxes on his home, has access to the commissary and exchange for life, and few other things that I can't think of right now.
