I agree with the previous posters. When my DH was in the military, the government still gave us a housing allowance while my DH was in school. My DH lived in the barracks and ate in the mess hall.
On military bases, they offer inexpensive activities. Playing golf on the base golf course is discounted. Many activities on base for children are inexpensive. The military subsidizes these things, otherwise most military personnel couldn't afford them of their limited salary. It's one of the perks military men get for RISKING THEIR LIVES, and their families get for the ever-present chance of losing their husbands and fathers.
