Military pay outpaces civilians'. Is it justified?
from The Virginian-Pilot
Whether you are military or civilian, enlisted or officer — mention military pay in the Virginian region and you're likely to hear an earful. To some, the topic is synonymous with the nation's commitment to those who serve and sacrifice on its behalf. Others see military pay and benefits surpassing civilian wages and question whether they're too generous, especially as Congress grapples with reductions in defense spending. It's an emotional issue, especially in Hampton Roads, Virginia, where military pay drives the economy.
