We have engines lol! Just stating because. I'm suprised the Military doesn't pay you enough...? I was in Texas for 2 and a half years on Ft. Hood living off post. In Killeen, I'm just woundering how in the world could you not afford 3k, specially if over seas.
Edit: Non-E6/NCO, I currently have a friend that still active and is a lowly E3 and he has no room for advancement and he makes 1800 1st and 15th. Granted if you have a family its harder but then you get crazy BHA. That more then enough for any housing.
