You're right, it does depend entirely on what post that you live at...but usually, E5s and E6s are allowed--and sometimes required--to live off post (even if they are unaccompanied).

I have to agree with Tacky. Try to get into a job that will actually get you to where you eventually want to be. As far as whether you'll get deployed or not...probably. I know Soldiers who have...

Sounds to me like you need to get your command involved! When a commander calls another commander...things tend to get done a little more quickly. Don't try to fight the issue yourself--it's way too...

You're going to have to go enlisted first. The Army will pay off your loan in the first three years--then you can go OCS. I have a buddy who got his law degree and he joined just to pay off that...

Indisix is right. You'll get a housing allowance based on where she lives...and you'll live in the barracks. When she finishes school, the Army will move her out to live with you--when you request it.

I got mine in 30 days also. I was told though (assuming all the paperwork got submitted) that it can take up to 45 days. Just make sure that you stay on top of it--you earned that money!;)
