Excellent salary packages

MOST ARMY ENLISTED ACTIVE DUTY SOLDIERS START OUT WITH THE SAME BASIC PAY. AS OF 2019, THAT WAS $20,170.80 ANNUALLY AFTER THE FIRST FOUR MONTHS OF SERVICE. PAY DURING THE FIRST FOUR MONTHS OF BASIC COMBAT TRAINING IS SLIGHTLY LOWER. AFTER SIX MONTHS OF SERVICE, PAY INCREASES (TO $22,608 IN 2019) AND CONTINUES TO RISE WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.
MILITARY PAY GOES BEYOND THIS BASE SALARY. IT ALSO INCLUDES HOUSING FOR SOLDIERS AND DEPENDENTS, FOOD ALLOWANCES, AND HEALTH INSURANCE. WHILE THE BASIC PAY MAY BE LOWER THAN EARNINGS ARE FOR CIVILIAN JOBS, WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE IS FACTORED IN, THOSE WHO ENLIST IN THE ARMY CAN END UP WITH HIGHER OVERALL COMPENSATION.
