    If the dependent is traveling on the same reservation as the active duty AND traveling on official orders/i.e. relocation, then everyobe gets 5 bags each.

    A dependant can travel alone as well on official orders and get the 5 bags. Otherwise, dependants are subject to normal fees and allowances

      I see you mention the 'five bags' too. Where is the rule for this? I'm not denying it exists; I just want to see the actual wording.

      And as 'bag' is such a general word, surely the rule must include a definition of what size or weight a 'bag' is.

    As the rule quoted by Anonymous doesn't say anything about 'five bags', we have to wonder what rule YOU are quoting. Can you post it here? We can't comment on its wording unless we know what it actually says, rather than your quick summary of it.

    Click on EDIT and post the rule as an Update.

    Baggage acceptance allowance

    Active duty military personnel traveling on official orders or for pleasure are invited to check extra baggage free of charge (excluding military pet shipments).

    [*] In some cases, military dependents will also be included.
