Pentagon Should Raise Enlisted Pay – Only Senior Officers Are Overpaid
Enlisted men are still hideously underpaid. A new recruit (E1) still makes less than $1500 a month (granted he is given rations and quarters). A perfect demonstration that the rank of ‘Private’ and the word ‘privation’ have similar roots. A new sergeant (E5) only makes $2305.00 in basic pay. Both are hideously underpaid. (I am plucking these figures from the ‘years in service’ columns that | Read More »

Weltz of AT, even claimed that Bush was strong on defense, and contrasted Bush with Obama (who began a series of disastrous defense cuts 8 months ago).
