Department of Defense

The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

I'm currently a GS-12 in GTMO. (Navy side.)

I just received a tentative offer for Landstuhl, Germany. They have submitted my LQA paperwork. Co-workers are saying I will not get it since I was not in the US when hired for Germany. Anyone know if that's true? I don't receive LQA here, but housing/utilities are provided without any cost to me.

And if not, would GS-12 be enough to live in Landstuhl? They said no on-base housing is available except for military. I'd be tempted to do it anyway just for the experience even if LQA is denied, but have a family and want to be able to save for retirement also. I have about 2.5 of my 5 years overseas left.

Thanks for any input!
