The U.S. military
offers some of the best benefits to be found anywhere! By being a member
of any military service, you automatically receive a competitive starting
salary, free medical and dental care, free (or very cheap) medical and
dental care for your immediate family, 30 days paid vacation every year,
free travel, educational benefits, commissary and exchange privileges
and much more. Every branch of the United States Armed Forces offers
the same basic military benefits. Some services may also offer special
incentives, such as enlistment bonuses of extra college funds. This
page will address only the basic benefit package.
How much will I make?
A typical high school
graduate, with no college or "Special Youth Program" (JROTC,
ROTC, Civil Air Patrol, Eagle Scout, Sea Explorer, etc.) and no prior
military service can expect to start out at paygrade E-1. According
to the current Military Pay Schedule, this amounts to a BASIC PAY of
$964.80 per month, under 4 months, and $1042.80 after your 4 month anniversary.
This doesn't sound like much money, but keep in mind that you will have
NO LIVING EXPENSES! The military will give you FREE housing, or pay
you more. You will receive FREE FOOD, or be paid to provide your own.
All of your medical and dental care is FREE! In additon to BASIC PAY,
you may also qualify for additional money for SEA PAY, OVERSEAS PAY,
FLIGHT PAY, SPECIAL DUTY PAY and more! Normally, your BASIC PAY amounts
to about 1/3 of the total pay, if you are receiving housing and food
allowances. Request further information by clicking on the service logo
