THIS POLL IS FOR ACTIVE MILITARY ONLY! PLEASE DO NOT SKEW THE NUMBERS BY VOTING IF YOU ARE NOT CURRENTLY SERVING YOUR NATION ON ACTIVE DUTY!!!!
Gents we have lots of polls and surveys around here about age and have even discussed our professions and that got me wondering...
There are many aspects of our various Acquisitions Disorders that can be very expensive. I remember when I was a brand new Airman Basic (E-1) I couldn't even pay my rent on two weeks pay. Times were very tough and making ends meet was always a struggle. Needless to say life is very different for me now with more than a dozen years in service and an E-6 (hope soon to be E-7) pay grade. I'm not wealthy by any measure but I don't struggle like I did when I was a young Airman.
So my question for our Active Duty members is what pay grade/rank are you? Do you find it difficult to enjoy the various AD's we all share?
If you are military from a country other than the USA please feel free to vote for the Pay Grade you think is closest to yours.
Feel free to post your Rank and/or share any stories below.
