Is there help for child care when you go away to Basic and AIT for the Army?

I really want to join the military. I was wondering if there is any financial help or any help at all with providing child care while you attend basic and AIT. If anyone know anything I certainly would appreciate the help. Thanks.

  • I don't think so, I considered joining the military but I'm a single mom and I was told I was going to have to sign over temporary custody of my child to join so it was a no go. That was a few years ago so I'm not sure if anything has changed or not. I'd talk to a recruiter to make sure though.
