My wife and I will be stationed at Fort Drum, NY soon. Our family and friends live in Queens, NY. Our main apartment will be in Queens, NY, where we stay during weekends and holidays. We'll be getting a small studio near Fort Drum for duty days. My question is, will our BAH be the rate of Fort Drum, NY, or Queens, NY?

Plenty of folks have answered your question and I would like to focus on the distance. I am seeing over three hundred miles you are planning to travel every weekend. Will you really be home to Queens that often to warrant the cost? This is likely a mileage pass from Drum to NY and as a jr enlisted, you are going to have duty outside of M-F quite regularly and staying in a hotel in Queens might be more affordable for the times you will go back verses two apartments.
