Hot Off the Press - NEW BAH Rates for 2011


If you are stationed here within the US or CONUS (contiguous United States) as it’s called then you will receive Basic Allowance for Housing. This Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is a U.S. based allowance prescribed by geographic duty location, pay grade, and dependency status.

The Department of Defense released today the 2011 Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rates, which take effect Jan. 1, 2011. While overall rates will decrease an average of 0.59 percent, because of the individual rate protection provision, (BOO!) the average change service members will see is a 1.1 percent increase (WOW!).

Use this calculator and see what your new BAH is going to be. If you see that your rate has decreased know that:

Individual rate protection ensures that individual members already assigned to a given location will not see their BAH rate decrease, though they will receive the increase if the rate goes up. This assures that members who have made long-term commitments in the form of a lease or contract are not penalized if the area’s housing costs decrease. Any decreases only apply to members newly reporting to a location.

A typical junior enlisted member with dependents will find his/her BAH about $39 per month higher than last year, while a senior non-commissioned officer with dependents will receive about the same amount as last year.

How is BAH calculated?

There are three parts that are used to determine your BAH:

The average rent in the area where you are stationed
the average utility bill in the are that you are stationed, (including electricity, heat, and water/sewer)
Average Renters insurance (if you rent PLEASE make sure you have one!)
This calculations are made for 6 different types of housing styles (type of house/home/appartment and rooms) in military housing areas, then the rates are calculated for the different grades,with dependents and without dependents.

Navy Digital Dads & Sons Now in an NEX near you!


Hi all. I have had tons of emails regarding our New NWU decals! They are available in Dad & Sons in light, medium and dark skin tones. However, I'm sorry to say that you cannot purchase them through our website. There are strict copyright laws regarding the Navy NWU pattern that we must adhere to!
That being said...Nexcom just reordered a substantial quantity of the new NWU decals as well as all the other Navy decals they were out of. Will be shipping the decals to: North Island & 32nd Street (San Diego, CA); Oceana & Norfolk (VA) and Jacksonville & Pensacola (FL) Exchanges on December 6th. The decals can be found in the Navy Pride Section of the Exchange and should be available for purchase around the last week or so of December. If you don't see them in the Exchanges list above around this time, please ask to speak with the manager in the NP section, and hopefully they can either find them in the back for you or at the very least give you an exact time they should be on the floor for purchase.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions and Happy Shopping!

Black Friday SALE!!!!

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to officially announce our BIG SALE for Black Friday, November 26, 2010. This will be a 1 DAY SALE ONLY!!! You will NOT want to miss out! The sale will include:
  • 30% off ALL Military Car Decals - if you don't have a set, or know someone who doesn't have a set, now is definitely the time to order!!
  • 20% off ALL Rubber Stamps (accessories NOT included)
  • 10% off ALL Custom Printing (includes t-shirts, plaques, ovals, coasters, ornaments and canvases)

We can't set up our website checkout to have a separate discount for everything above and it's just too much work to change our entire website for a one day sale - so, please enter BLACK FRIDAY in the Discount Section and we will manually take off the appropriate discount before charging your credit card. Your new total will then be emailed to you along with the date you product(s) will ship. I CANNOT manually apply discounts to orders when paid through PayPal, so please pay by credit card if you would like to enjoy the discount - thanks!

Also, please keep in mind that custom items such as ornaments, coasters, etc. generally take around 2 weeks before they even ship - but as the Holiday Season approaches, it may take us a little longer than usual to print and ship custom items. Our custom Christmas Ornaments are definitely a favorite, so don't forget to order this hard to find customized item!

Thank you for your continued support! Also, don't forget to follow us on Twitter & Facebook!

Happy Shopping!

What's New and What's Coming

Hope you all are enjoying the last few weeks of summer break (I know some children have already started back to school) YIKES!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Beginning around the end of August/early September, My Military Hero will be offering "yellow" and white dogs. I have had so many requests, I thought we should just go ahead and produce them. Next, we will offer the Marine Corps family wearing the dessert digitals. I personally like the green, but again when enough of our customers request items - we answer!
Next, we will also be introducing Coast Guard family decals to our site around the same same timeframe. We have some in stock right now, but for some reason we were missing the babies (don't know what happened there). So if you just simply can't wait until we get them up on website, you can email me and we can work something out :). Welcome CG family!
Lastly, My Military Hero is now on Twitter - Yay! Twitter 101: Did you know that you don't have to just Tweet from your phone? You can do it from home as well. I wasn't very Twitter savvy so I logged on and started reading. I get very minimal cell reception at our home and didn't think I would be able to Tweet - WRONG! Also, it's FREE from your home and your standard cell phone rates apply if using your cell. All you have to do is enter your information and choose a user name you will be known as. You can log on right now from your home computer http://www.twitter.com/ and look up MyMilitaryHero and read what I have posted thus far. Yes, it's that simple! I should have done this months ago!
Thank you all again for your support! Hope to see on Twitter soon!

Calling ALL Marine Corps Spouses...

I just received my new Scentsy catalog today and was so excited to see this new Marine Corps Warmer I had heard so much about. I found the warmer in the catalog...I was VERY DISAPPOINTED (to say the least) to find out the warm was blue and not some shade of RED. Yes, maybe blue for... the AF, Navy & CG, but the Marine Corps? That is just wrong! Do you agree or am I toally getting my panties in a wad over nothing? HELP!

My Military Hero Taking the Next Step

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all having a nice summer thus far. Happy belated 4th! I'm sorry that I have not posted in a while, but as most of you know we just completed a cross-country PCS move. Man what a trip...almost 3000 miles - YIKES!! Anyway, we arrived safely - no tickets and all children alive! It actually wasn't that bad of a trip, but thank goodness it will be our last cross-country move (I hope!) We weren't able to get a house on base so we are renting out house just outside of Stafford and we absolutely LOVE IT! I love being back on the EC and so close to family!

On another note, My Military Hero is taking the next step in our business. I just filed all of the LLC (Limited Liability Company/Corporation) paperwork!! I'll post once everything is official!! This is so exciting for us! I also have a meeting with the buyer for MCCS (the Marine Corps Exchange)on Thursday. Please say a little prayer for me that day :)! We are very hopeful to get picked up by MCCS and be able to sell our military car decals at several of their locations. The buyer I have to meet with is a tough sell so I definitely have to have my ducks in a row for the meeting. I'll also let you all know (good or bad) how things go.

PROMOTION:
While supplies last, customers who order at least $30 worth of merchandise (excludes shipping & handling and tax) will receive a FREE canvas tote! Tote description: Sturdy and 100% cotton twill with contrasting canvas bottom and straps. Has an exterior front pocket and webbed handles. The dimensions are 14.5"h x 14"w x 5.5"d.
Thank you to all of you for emails, posts, support and suggestions! Keep them coming! I promise I will post more especially this year as I will not be homeschooling the kids.
Take care all and Happy Summer!

*New Navy Digital & Flight Suit Decals & Contest*


Hi Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the beginning of summer. I wanted to officically announce our newest decals: the New Navy Digital and Navy Flight Suit females are here! There is one little catch though...we can only sell the Navy Digitals through the Navy Exchanges and not through our website. I know, I know - I'm really sorry, but we had to sign an exclusive copyright contract with the Navy Exchange to even be able to produce these super cute decals. We are able to sell the Navy Flight Suit females and they have just been added to our website.
We just shipped out our first shipment of digitals and flight suits to 6 Exchange locations this past Friday. They should have them in their Navy Pride Section and hopefully to be ready to sell by June 18th. The locations that will be selling our decals are as follows:
  • 32nd Street Main Exchange, San Diego CA
  • North Island, Coronado CA
  • Norfolk Main Store, Norfolk VA
  • NEX Oceana Main Store, Virginia Beach VA
  • Pensacola Main Store, Pensacola FL
  • JAX NAS Main Store, Jacksonville FL

We are in the process of working with the buyer for the Navy Exchanges to expose our decals to more Exchange locations. If you would like to see our decals in an Exchange near you, please email us so that we can compile all requests.

Now for the Fun Part!! Would you like to be the first family to own a set of New Digital Decals? Well, here's your chance...send us an email (MyHero@MyMilitaryHero.net), FaceBook us or post on our Blog why you would love to win a set of the New Digital Decals and they could be yours! The contest begins today June 7th and will run only through June 23rd!! Why June 23rd you ask, because our family will be PCSing from CA to VA on June 24th and I would like to be able to mail out the decals before our cross-country move.

Rules: Well, there really are no rules, but all Navy supporters, please pass this information along to all other Navy spouses, friends, etc you know. (*Please also note that only the dads and sons will be wearing the digitals. The moms and the daughters remain the same w/the blue dress and anchor*)

Thank you again for supporting a fellow military spouse and My Military Hero.

New Tooth Fairy Pillows


Our little girl is losing her first tooth and what a better way to help celebrate this occasion, but with a super cute Tooth Fairy pillow. This way the Tooth Fairy will have an easier time finding the tooth and leaving the loot!

The size of the pillow is 11"x11" and is meant to either hang on the bedpost or on the doorknob for prime access. There are many boutique fabrics and thread choices to choose from. We will eventually get them posted on our website, but I just couldn't wait to share. If interested, please feel free to contact me though my blog, Facebook or our website (http://www.mymilitaryhero.net/) and search in embroidery.
Thanks again for following my blog.

Happy Spring from My Military Hero!

Well it's that time of year again...wanting to be outside all the time, going to the beach, taking family vacations and let's not forget PCSing. In the upcoming weeks I will be blogging about "all the information you will need for a successful DITY move". So be sure to check back if you are thinking about moving yourself...let me tell you if you meet the right criteria and are ready for a few days of hard work, your purse/bank will definitely thank you for it!!
Vacation Time: Anheuser-Busch is continuing their salute to the military for 2010 to Adventure Island, SeaWorld, Water Country USA & Busch Gardens. Here's what they have to say:
We are proud to salute the men and women of our armed forces and their families. Throughout 2010, members of the military and as many as three direct dependents may enter SeaWorld, Busch Gardens or Sesame Place parks with a single-day complimentary admission.
For your service and sacrifice, we thank you.
You can visit their website to find out more at http://www.herosalute.com/. Is this awesome or what!!!
On a side note, our family will be PCSing to the east coast at the end of June! We are super excited and keeping our fingers crossed for a MCX contract!!!

Calling ALL Military Spouses with Home-Based Businesses

Hi everyone. If you are a military spouse with a home-based business or know other military spouses with home-based businesses this post is for you.

For the month of April, I would like to blog about my military customers who have a home-based business. Whether it's Cookie Lee, Avon, Mary Kay or a personal business that you have started yourself. Most companies these days (even small ones like mine) have websites and people can purchase from anywhere around the world. So why not support a fellow military spouse. This is just my way of giving back.

I know off the top of my head, several of you do have a HBB, but I do want to respect your privacy. So I WILL NOT post about you/your business unless you personally send me the below information.

If you are interested in the recognition through this blog, this is what I will need from you: your name (first name only is okay), your business name and contact information (even if it's just a website or email contact infomation ) - it's up to you! Also, please send your information to me as soon as you can - I have a feeling I'm going to have a lot business to post about!! Exciting!!

Thank you again for supporting My Military Hero! I look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

New Marine Dads with Cover


We are pleased to present our new Marine Daddies with cover. When we originally began our business in 2006, we basically just produced military rubber stamps. The image above (without the cover) was a generic "military" daddy stamp that could have include the Marine Corps, Army & Air Force. Each branch is so specific with their "covers", "berets" and "hats" that it was just too expensive to try to include every small detail.
In the latter part of 2007, I started wondering what it would be like to have these same images made in to car decals. In 2008, I contacted several companies and finally found one that made our images come to life. We are still using this company today and have been very happy to keep our decals produced in the United States! We began with just producing the Marine Corps decals. The daddies had black hair (like my hubby); the wife brown hair; the sons black hair and the daughters & baby girls black hair. As they became more popular, we started producing all hair colors.
Upon moving to our current duty station, people started asking for all branches of service. Thus, we began producing Army, Navy, Air Force and even Coast Guard decals. We are still working out the kinks on some branches, but I definitely think we are moving in the right direction. We try to have the most up-to-date uniforms and accessories for each branch of service. This can definitely prove difficult at times because as most of you know, the uniforms seem to be constantly changing.
Please remember our sale for the month of February and also our Contest for a FREE set of decals! Also, don't forget to "Follow Us" (at the top left of our blog) as I am adding new information about items and our growing company weekly.
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone and God bless!
