Topic: Officer pay range?


Right now I'm a senior in highscool, and I've decided where to go to college. The question is what to do afterwards, but there's no harm in thinking ahead.. I've always been attracted by the idea of the military, but my one big concern is...
Is it reasonably possible to support a large (say 4-7 kids) family as an officer in the military?

All depends on when you want to start having this clan, and what sacrifices you're willing to make. One of my friends (an O1) has two children right now, and is about to make O2, and is doing fine, but he doesn't drive a real nice car or live what you might call a luxurious lifestyle. Of course, having a spouse who works is beneficial, but that also depends on your view of parenting.

I think your biggest challenge will be in finding a woman willing to bear you seven kids.

Topic: MIL Officer Pay Grades


I'm enlisted, and even though this may not apply, I was always told ( in the air force) if you want to have a family and be able to get by, you need at least 2 stripes for yourself, and an additional stripe for each dependent. Remember, this is on a very tight budget. No frills. No BMW in the Driveway, Base Housing.

Here's how that theory breaks down:

E-1-------No Wife, No Children
E-2-------No Wife, No Children
E-3-------Married, No Children
E-4-------Married, 1 Child
E-5-------Married, 2 Children
E-6-------Married, 3 Children
E-7-------Married, 4 Children
E-8-------Married, 5 Children----- YOU MIGHT BE CRAZY
E-9-------Married, 6 Children

O-1-------Married, 7 Children
O-2-------Married, 8 Children----- TIME FOR A SECTION 8?
O-3-------Married, 9 Children
O-4-------Married, 10 Children
O-5-------Married, 11 Children
O-6-------Married, 12 Children
O-7-------Married, 13 Children----- WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!
O-8-------Married, 14 Children
O-9-------Married, 15 Children
O-10------Married, 16 Children
