There is no question rate of pay cannot begin to compensate what military personnel do for the country. When I was in, I brought home 400.00 after taxes per month.
p.s. I'm gonna go get a shopping cart from Costco and head over to that place. Where is it again?

Our military is a volunteer organization and our pay scale is easily found online, so if the amount of money you get isn't to your liking, that's your problem for not researching your profession before entering it. You take someone like me who has only a high school diploma and I make a hell of a lot more in the army than I would in one of the boat factories back home. When life sucks and you wonder what the hell you're doing, just remember that you volunteered for it. Now, if the taxpayers get together and demand another 12% pay raise like Rockin' Ronnie gave us, then i won't protest that too badly, I guess.

Full tuition wherever, book allowance, and E-5 BAH where you are, tax free. My daughter just started at U-Texas and she makes more on the GI Bill than she did working full-time for an optometrist. My GI Bill was something like $200 per month, period.

She got out as an E-5 and stateside she made about $50K per year as a 22 year old. Where else can you do that? Had she decided to re-enlist the bonus was $60,000 in her MOS (Arabic linguist) Her hubby, who made the military a career and made CWO, makes about $90K equivalent stateside. He also got himself a BA while serving.

I agree that 'hostile fire pay' at a couple hundred bucks is shit, if not an insult, but overall, if you make the military a career and are savvy about career fields, you can do very well for yourself--certainly much better than the average civvy with a high school education floundering around for work.

I've done okay in life. I was damn fool lucky, but If I had it to do over again, knowing what I know now, I'd make the military my career. No question.

along with tax exemptions makes for a pretty good paycheck. Nearly every soldier I know of who didn't come back with a good chunk of change in the bank either had their account wiped out by jealous or cheating spouses, or spent lots of money on dumb shit while deployed and just about anyone who has deployed during the current war will say the same thing.

890 a month. My base pay as an E6 right now is 3390 a month. Plus I get money for housing and food, my total gross each month is a cunt hair below 5 grand. Almost 60k a year, plus what my wife makes as an E5, dual military isn't bad money at all. Then factor in free healthcare (which I sometimes think I'm overpaying for), free dental, (definitely overpaying for that.), and a PX and commissary that offer tax-free shopping. Commissary has a 5% "surcharge", but it's still less than the tax off post. But I have a Fry's card that gets me 10 cents off per gallon in gas and that makes a difference with that 30 gal tank on my truck, so I do my grocery shopping there. Wal-Mart is cheaper on most things than the PX, but for big ticket items like TVs and other electronics, that tax-free makes a big difference. The military is a very competitive employer when you look at the salary and benefits packages available to us. And although I don't really like being in the limelight, if I go to a place off post with a waiting room and I'm in uniform, I could sit next to a CEO of a Fortune 500 company and I guarantee other people will be more interested in talking to me. How many times has a Mr Goodwrench employee, senator, or pro athlete had the experience of seeing a woman move her kids out of line and offer them a place in front of her while boarding an aircraft (I declined, of course. In fact, I helped her with her baggage), or had a seventy or eighty year old woman butt people out of the way at the bank so she could shake their hand and thank them for what they do? I don't care about recognition, but seeing that appreciation from normal people tells me that what I do, and what those before me did, is and was about much more than the pay.

similar...I doubt this is a private collection. Runaway...I am sure you heard the phrase..."embrace the suck" couldn't agree more with you though. My first year in, my total pay was 6,000....yippee! But I didn't care at all, honestly the money was not really important as just being part of the military.

Ah, free ammo.

Those were the days. Not much of that anymore. And nothing even close to realistic training here. Life sucks.

AHH real training

If it didn't rain before we did low crawls they
turned on the water hoses. Crawl better in
mud than on dry dirt. But in Louisiana it
rained every fuckin morning anyway.

realistic training...

First i dont know what im doing talking to you guys when i could be out driving in my beautiful mts.. shooting some cheap ($7 box reloads) ammo and drinking a beer.. and yes to be honest i have, and sometimes do all three at the same time.. if i can't break the law.... well who can..

Anyway the realistic training thing brought up a memory (i hear this collective sigh...)

The dept. wanted to teach inmate take downs at the acadamy.. there is NO WAY to teach this because every inmate will fight diffrent.. Ya just do the dance... honest you just grab hold and wrestle.. period.. But the dept. wanted to teach it so after three months of infighting re: the ciriculum, and memos flying back and forth a training manual was developed and a class scheduled.. The VERY FIRST class results in like five injurys.. Inmate takedown 101 was subsequently canceled.. ok...still gona go out.. see ya later..
