Service members will get an 11% increase in their monthly basic allowance for subsistence starting Jan. 1, Military Times reported.
The new monthly rate for enlisted members will be $452.56, an increase of more than $45 from this year’s rate. For officers, the rate will be $311.68, an increase of more than $31.
Military Times reported this is the biggest percentage increase since 2002, when the BAS became how service members paid for their meals.
