On- And Off-Base Housing
Many bases have full-size homes in residential areas on base for Airmen and their families. Those who are authorized to live off base will receive a basic housing allowance that can be used to pay for off-base housing. The amount received depends on rank, location, and whether or not you have dependents.
The commissary is the Air Force tax-free grocery store. You’ll find everything you need there, from organic produce to name-brand packaged goods, all usually priced lower than a regular grocery store.
Dining Facilities & Fast Food
Air Force dining facilities serve a variety of foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the men and women in the Air Force. Need a quick bite? Try one of the on-base fast-food restaurants.
Air Force Inn
When you travel, you can take advantage of the on-base inn for rates that are less than what you’ll find off base.
