Both of which are colossal pains in the butt. Subletting is a dangerous gamble. Sure you'll EVENTUALLY get made whole, but when you can simply avoid this, it's really a no-brainer if you have the choice.
If the damage is more than their paycheck, then you still gotta cough up the difference. Not to mention extensive repairs take extensive time.If they do not, the landlord simply contacts the command and it is taken care of, right out of the military person's paycheck. Where else do you get that kind of guarantee?
I'm not singling out military, I'm just anti-subletting in general.
