I’ve got proof! The 2011 Basic Allowance for Subsistence Rates are:
- Enlisted Personnel, $325.04
- Officers, $223.84
I certainly feel like food costs have gone up, but it seems that the numbers don’t agree with my assessment. I’m going to do a separate piece on the history of BAS and how it is calculated, and I’ll link here when it is done.
Update 22 December 2010: finished! See Understand How Basic Allowance for Subsistence Works for more information.
