Are they payed monthly or weekly?[edit]

Article now says: 1st and 15th of the month. --Pmsyyz (talk) 07:22, 2 December 2009 (UTC)


Given that the title of the article is descriptive and not a proper noun, as well as per WP:MOSTITLE, shouldn't this article be at United States military pay? — pd_THOR | =/\= | 16:40, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Yep, you're right, that makes more sense. --AzureCitizen (talk) 00:22, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Basic Allowance for Subsistence[edit]

I am not sure if this is the same for all services but in the US Marine Corps, single Marines in the rank of SSgt and below are still issued meal cards. They do recieve BAS, but it is then deducted. I am not sure why they do this but after checking the Leave and Earning Statement of one of my junior Marines I saw it for myself. Bunns 1775 (talk) 15:45, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
