Article on married soldiers sharing living quarters

As well as just being interesting in general, I thought this article on how the U.S. military handles deployed married couples might be of interest to fic writers who pair off military character on Atlantis:

Living arrangements and public displays of affection are discussed. Apparently it's only in the last two years that married couples sharing living quarters in the field has even been an option, and there still are not nearly as many private accommodations as there are couples requesting them.

(Obviously, too, this is yet another area where gay couples get screwed -- or not screwed, as the case may be.)
