When you or your husband deployed, did you/he still get BAS?  

I know some do, so if you/he did, where did you/he deploy to?

Here is a website I have had on my list of links.  I am not sure how current the numbers are though.

Currently in Afghan and he still receives BAS. He's located on a FOB and his "menu" is less than desirable.

It is technically supposed to be taken while the soldier is having meals provided through a mess hall, but most CoCs let it slide. With the budget cuts looming though, more and more are taking the BAS.
