    Anyone know if the whole "save pay" thing applies once we reach active duty after graduation? Thanks in advance!

    Read the instruction, save pay until you reach parity with your previous rank

    Does that include BAH? And, do you have a link to the reg so I can stop asking silly questions :)?

    BAH is purely based on rank and dependants. Current students get O1 BAH when you graduate O3 BAH. Amount depends on where you live. Since you will all be given PCS orders, your BAH will adjust to current rate at your locale.

    All of this information can be found in the JFTR (Joint Finance and Travel Regulation) at http://perdiem.hqda.pentagon.mil/perdiem/portalstatus.html.

    Ahh. Thanks! So, I get prior base pay with O-3 BAH. Makes a big difference regarding how much house I can afford. And thanks for the link.
