Been trying to decide what to put on my dream sheet when i leave to boot camp, but i have a quick question.
Are there any stations that you know of that dont have barracks? Im not married and dont plan on being for quite a while. I just want to have my own place and not be on a cutter because of personal reasons.
So in summary, any stations that give you bah even if your not married?
It may seem like I'm splitting hairs here, but when you say station, what are you referring to? When we refer to a station, we mean a Small Boat Station. These are small units (sometimes very small) and don't have housing. You'll receive BAH. If, by station, you mean a CG Base, then yes, housing is available on base in many cases (though not all). For example, Base San Pedro in the Port of Los Angeles does not have on base housing. Compare that with Base Alameda in the San Francisco Bay area, which does have a barracks available.
Should you get assigned to a cutter out of boot camp, you will be required to live on board until you have your qualifications signed off ( a great incentive to get your quals done as soon as you can).
