eviction & the military

Have a unique situation renting a home to two married couples. All want to be on the lease, husband in service has poor credit history. If there's any default on the rent are people in the service ( particularly if being deployed) protected from the usual course of action?

Military housing tenants are protected by the same state and federal fair housing and consumer protection laws as civilian tenants. Due to the DoD's authority to relocate military members to new assignments without their consent, Congress enacted legislation that permits military tenants to lawfully terminate rental contracts early without penalty when they receive military orders to relocate. In time of war, members may be deployed for extended periods without the worry of owing back rents on rental units that they could not occupy.
