The nation’s No. 2 military officer reiterated calls to curb service members’ pay and benefits during a speech Wednesday at the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference in National Harbor, Md. Growth in pay and benefits is “out of touch and simply not sustainable,” said Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. James Winnefeld. Probably a little easier for someone making $192K a year than the average E-5 or 0-2. I realize something has to be done but I do not beleive this is the solution. JMHO.
