Problem is, you lose out on the housing allowance if you don't reside within 100 miles of base. Around $4500 USD a month.

Itís exactly $3,500 per month. Can become more, but the Euro has to get much stronger than it is now.

Right now heís not getting a housing allowance and living there. If first year pay in the FDA ($100/hr) is more than heís making now, I donít see losing the housing as a show stopper.

Most people find a place to live for less than @$2K ( +/- $) and pocket the extra, so yeah that's an extra @$20K a year..
