I think that most Special Operations personnel are compensated fairly for their service with exception to their retirement. That’s a different story all together.  The fact that an E-9 cook (no offense) behind the wire will get the same retirement as an E-9 Green Beret has always bothered me. Spec Ops special pays should calculate into retirement equations. Period.

Getting Shot At For $7.50 A Day or Two Cups of Starbucks Coffee

For the rest of the regular forces, $7.50 a day to get shot at seems a little cheap.  It’s a shame some U.S. Military families are actually on food stamps.  Especially when a US Congressman makes $200k a year plus benefits and the only hostility they face is an upset mistress blackmailing them with TMZ.

What do you think?
