my friends husband came home from the army this week end they have decided that he would live on base and she would live here.the wife doesnt seem to upset when he leaves.the son is out of control though and misses his dad,she could live with him.(another story)i am sorry but i would think there would be reprocutions from only seeing your father a couple times a year when you really could be living with him.i feel bad for the child.the boy seems really lonely.any ideas.

Unless it is because of an unaccompanied remote or deployment, he could lose his base housing if his family is living somewhere else. My brother was stationed stateside, his wife (Japanese) was staying back in Japan to care for her elderly mother. Base Housing gave him "so many months" for his family to join in at base housing before he was told he needed to move off base. This was 7 years ago. I am not sure if it has changed. But if he is living off of base, I don't see that being a problem. Where he spends his BAH is up to him. As for the emotional ramifications on the family and son. I would imagine it would be hard. It depends on so many OTHER variables. How the child's mother talks of the father; What their relationship is like, etc... Too many variable and too interpersonal to get involved in a political/current even Q&A.

They must be broke up/separated..that's the only reason the army would do that if they were in the same city/post.
