Abstract:

The military services have not complied with Department of Defense policy, and congressional guidance, providing that on base family housing should be constructed only when local communities cannot meet the requirements of military installations. Deficiencies in housing surveys for determining family housing requirements and the services practice of assigning families to on base housing on the grounds of rank rather than family entitlement have magnified the need for, and construction of, unnecessary housing on military installations.
