Military and Cops

Either way, they both should get respect they deserve.

I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible.

RIDER stop .... thats not even what this post is about... and as far as the pay difference between single and married?? the majority of the time, it's only a few hundred dollars a month... if you look up the bah charts for most areas, single is only behind married rate like 2-300 dollars (which isnt anything when your looking at a one bedroom compared to a 2 or 3 bedroom place) the married guy is still going to be a lil more broke then the single guy... i just got one question... did u have some of the married guys flaunting alot of money in front of your face when you were in or something?? i mean c'mon bro, that was 15 years ago... how much do u think has changed since then?? i'm guessing alot... just sounds like you've got a vendetta against anyone who's married in the military...

and do u want to know the official reason they make more?? i'll break it down for you, so u can understand...

if a married soldier makes the same exact pay as a single one, then that makes him less able to take care of his family, which can add more stress/kill his morale, which in turn can affect his job performance....

but as far as that part of it goes, i'm done with that whole argument, GET OVER IT ALREADY...

now back to the original post...

should military/police make more?? yes... do i ever see it happening (besides our yearly 3% raise)?? no...

ask anyone in the military if they joined for the money, and they will quickly tell u to go [email protected] urself... its just not there, and thats not why most of us joined...

i mean, wow.... u'll give me 35k a year to go get shot at, have some of my friends killed, work somewhere around a normal 60-70 hour week, and be able to see my family maybe 1 or 2 months out of the year??? O WHERE DO I SIGN?? lol... wise up and realize that while, u can make a comftorable living in the military (once u make a high enough grade), if you join the military soley for the money, then your just plain dumb... cuz you aint gonna make it.... you have to join for the right reasons....

sorry for the rant... just my .02

Come on are you serious?!?!!? Can we be a lilttle more 2nd grade I mean really... I have read this entire thread and I all I can get from it is that YOU dropped out after YOU got your FREE education ( does that mean you got EXTRA pay for school... oh no thats right you used the GI bill for that, which I do belive is GOVERNMENT funded ) ( I work for a college, I know all about it) All I see is a guy that didn't want to have student loans and there for joined the service for the benies... OH wait thats right, guys that get married while in service are dumb A's cause thats what they did to ensure their child/ wife will be taken care of if something were to happen to him/her. You wanna compare apples to oranges? lets think of it this way.. if you had a family to support you would choose the job with the better benies... not the job with crappy benies... military ='s good benies... so get off your high 4 year hose I have know people that have been in the military for a VERY long time and I didn't see them run after their first 4 years... they are still in.. and some have been to Iraq a few times... soooo like I said get off your 4 year high horse.

I am VERY pro military, and pro Justice (I come from a long line of service in both) I am joining the ranks soon also, as in ranks I am talking about Justice side, not military.. to me it takes a very stong willed to be in the military, and although I am, military is not for me.. however being a officer is. Oh BTW I think they both should be paid higher then they are

Thanks & and have a good day!

Are you smoking crack? The GI bill is avaialbe to everyone in the military ragardless of your marital status, so you cant use that as an argument. Go back to my first post in this thread. My point was that the military pay is not high enough to support a family so they add allowances to help them out. Im not saying that is wrong in anyway. Damn I think the military is severly under paid. But my point is that the single guys should make every bit as much as the married guys of the same pay grade. I never once said that the married guys shouldnt get that money. I just think the single guys should be entitled too. Thats all, Im not putting anyone down. I just think it should be equal pay for equal work. Regarless if they actually see more money or not, it still costs the govenment more money to support a family than a single soldier.
