  • No. If you know someone that lives on base you can live with them BUT your not supposed to. You live at the base your husband is assigned to.

  • hmm, cause my sister said she could come stay at the base close by to me when her husband goes to Afghanistan, but they buy a house off the base in the area he's stationed in.  So she would be just leaving their OWN home and coming to a base home at my base.

  • No she can not get housing at a different base/post. She can rent a place off base/post though.

  • . She can live near the base but she cant live on it. You cant switch BAH like that a new location means new money and there is already waiting list for families who are stationed there. I think someone miss in formed her. She can live near that base but not on it.
