Unit Billeting

EDISTO crewmembers do not live aboard the ship. Single non-rated personnel live at the barracks with a roommate. Single Petty Officers are afforded BAH and must live on the economy. Coast Guard families have the option of a government leased apartment/house (if they qualify) or living on the economy. The Point Loma Naval Station offers the crew many amenities not offered other units in the area. Our moorings are very near the gym, park, private beach, barbershop, small exchange, gas station, and club.
