Hopefully you already know the answer to this question. I have never heard of this happening; AIT is part of Initial Entry Training. Until you complete it you are not authorized housing or command sponsorship of dependents. Your family will probably be able to visit you when you are off-duty, but the Army will not give your family housing or any other benefits until you complete IET and are part of a unit.

Actually for AITs 20+ weeks the Army will move your family. Once you get to AIT talk to the cadre, they will take care of you. My wife went to my 9 month AIT and I see IET soldiers all the time at the AIT where I teach living with their family.

It's YOUR career! Take control of it before someone else does.

These are the reasons why I am skeptical about joining the Army. People like this. They come off like they know every thing and then be so wrong and you have to respect them, if they are outrank you. That was just uncalled for.

This is one reason why I am skeptical about new Army recruits. Illiterate people like this. They are quick to dispute bad information, and you have to listen to them or they say you suck. That's what spell check is for.

The only problem there is, spelling and literacy is not the issue. Bad intel is the issue. And in this case the soldier seems to believe strongly that AIT is only for IET soldiers. Must be they never heard of re-class.

What is your MOS? My AIT orders said 20 weeks and 4 days, but, AIT for 35M is never more than 18 weeks. And I got into the shortened course of only 16 weeks. So don't get your hopes up until you find out that AIT is actually going to be that long.

I'm not trying to pessimistic, but the Army has made me pretty skeptical. I guess you can hope that your family will be accompanying you, but just don't expect it. And there's always the option of having them move there (which you'd have to pay for yourself), but you'll still be receiving BAH for them.

Yes. Some people have that put on their orders or gets their orders revise to be able to take their families. However, the AIT must be at least 20weeks long and in one location. For example...M6 school is 52 weeks long but the school is done half in Ft. Sam and the other at Walter Reed, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Gordon or etc. Because of this split you cannot take your family. Just ask your enlistment personnel and they will be able to square you away.
