OK, this is kinda scary. Danger Pay is being cut…

The danger pay cuts, part of a labor cost reduction initiative on the part of the DoD, will hit thousands of airmen and sailors now assigned to ships, ports, and flight ops in the Middle East. Danger Pay is scheduled to be discontinued in June, immediately affecting the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, the Gulf of Oman and the Red Sea.

Further, there is some strangeness to it all. Serbia and Montenegro were discontinued, but Athens Greece was not. Troops there will continue to receive Danger Pay. When reached for comment, the Pentagon had no immediate explanation for this, according to Military.com.

I’d like to ask Military.com why THAT was the question they asked when they finally got someone from the Pentagon on the phone. THAT would not have been the first question out of my mouth. I would have asked something more along the lines of, “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING?!!”

It’s real simple, in my opinion. Our military deserves better. The fighting men and women that safeguard our children every day deserve as much compensation as can be found. So… cutting danger pay? Really? Well, if Uncle Sam won’t give you what you’re worth, Exchange USA will. We have military loans.
