You are on your own, my dear. The military only gives benefits to legal spouses. I don't have a clue what he was referring to.
Sorry, I misread your question. Married you are entitled to rent on base housing, access to medical care, commissary and box privileges, chaplain and counseling services, and many more base privileges. The airmen's pay is also more when they are married.
Did you know recruiters lie.... and why not join yourself. The Airforce is very friendly, cares more than the other branches.<br />
Your husband, gets a pay check, that is what the USAF takes care of, medical care is average, if you have a treatment facility. It is not a free ride.
Want to buy a bridge ?
Don't count on that. A recruiter will say just about anything short of against the law. A few of my friends found that out.
You only get paid if you join. They don't hand out the money for nothing.
