IslandGuy, I'm under the impression that the military's "Basic Allowance for Housing" (BAH) and "Cost of Living Allowance" (COLA) are not taxable. What part of the military's leave & earnings statement is the "real taxable income added to our check"?

People might have a different impression of the money if we knew how long a tour you're referring to. An 18-month special/deployment tour? The two-year minimum activity tour? The three-year area tour?
