More out-of-pocket expenses to hit military families
from Association of the United States Army
The fiscal year 2016 defense budget announced Feb. 2, includes modest increases in military basic pay and housing allowances that could leave some military families holding on a little tighter to their wallets. Commissary subsidies would also be reduced by the 2016 budget, which calls for a $100 million reduction. Budget documents say the savings would come from "efficiencies and operating changes that do not require legislative changes." Military families should expect to see some reductions in operating days and hours.
