I was just curious if National Guard members receive BAH on deployment since we still have to maintain a home while we're gone.

Yes, you do. It will be based on your Home of Record (HOR). When you in-process for your deployment, your finance folks will (should) sort that out.

MAJ (Join to see) I may have to put everything in a leased storage unit since I live on my own and have no place to putilize it. Leasing a storage unit for my items and car cost almost as much as a rental unit here.

Leased storage won't qualify you for BAH. It may be claimed as a travel expense, but limited to actual costs incurred rather than the BAH rate.

SGT K G - Recent change, now they realize that Soldiers need to pay for housing regardless of their dependent status.

SGT K G You should, but when you do your pre-deployment training and SRP, there will be a finance brief that covers all your entitlements.
