The folks that are stationed in war zones are under paid , all others (95%) are way over paid.

The amount the military gets paid for retirement is very good and I have no problem with that for sure. What i do have a problem with is "When" they begin receiving benefits. They should not be drawing retirement benefits at age 38...thats just total BS especially when they can work another 30 years like the rest of us. I work with a guy that is 45 yrs. old and draws 75% of his military pay and makes another $70,000 on top of that. They should not be able to draw until age 60 at the earliest unless they can prove some kind of hardship or disability. Maybe that would save SS for the rest of us.
Again, I support our troops and Im all for making sure they have a comfortable retirement...just not until its needed at retirement age.
Also I was in the military 8 yrs.

I think the pay has finally caught up with the general public, except foreign military bases and war zones....we need to take better care of our veterens also..it is said shape in many non military town, like Louisville ,ky. where my brother lives..real sad...poor care and poorly treated..it's unbelieveable!..also, many jobs offer pensions for employee's for 20, 25.and 30 years of service..the retirement pay is not that good for enlisted personel,,but not sure on the officers' pay..
