    I love the rant, but it would only be fair to point out that military members have other benefits (housing, medical, schooling, etc.) that aren't available to burger flippers. That said, most military personnel are underpaid, IMO.

    With many benefits the pay is:

    E-1 under 4 months..2,904 x 12 = $34,848
    E-5 over 3 years.......3,919 x 12 = $47,028

    This does NOT include the tax advantage of over $200 a month as housing, clothing, is not taxable.

    A GI is entitled to 30 days paid vacation a year
    Authorized sick leave is unlimited
    No medical bills
    There are dozen of special pays including
    Family Separation....250/month
    Combat pay............225/month

    and as ITL stated : members have other benefits

    • get shot
    • blown up
    • lose arms, legs and other body parts
    • long separation from family
    • sleep on the ground for days at a time
    • PTSD
    • watch friends die

    The benefits just keep piling up.
