I googled military pay and just read a bunch of stuff from presumably enlisted people complaining about their pay. The weird thing was I grew up in a military family and money was never an issue. We took vacations, ate out, I went to private school. Granted my dad did retire as an O6, Navy captain. Was what I was reading just from some trolls or is military pay that bad? Obviously I know you don't join the military (O or E) for the money but I do want to be comfotable.
