Take it from a current enlisted soldier and combat veteran. Yeah I do have to sacrifice time away from my family and loved ones, (haven't seen my family since Christmas 09,) it's a choice I made willingly and I knew what my base pay would be since day one at the recruiter's office. I do get free healthcare, housing, meals etc., but, it really isn't much pay. I do believe my pay should be higher, but unlike these Wall Street executives, I'm not responsible for all the loot that they are. They have their job, I have mine.

I'm a soldier, wish I got paid more, but everyone gets paid based on the responsibilities their job puts on them.

USAG Baumholder, Germany. I have one foot out the door though. I am about to be a civilian again in about 60 days my friend.

I used to live in Baumholder back in '05-'06!

But I'm only a dependent. I'm joining the service, though!
