Military Salaries

A full time soldier is paid a starting wage 44% of an average wage, which payment begins upon entry to initial training.   No soldier drawing less than an average wage can be expected to purchase any of the apparel or implements associated with his duties, except those he loses or destroys through negligence.

For every year of tenure in the military, a soldier's wage is raised by 3%.   For every increase in major rank, a soldier's wage is raised by 50%.   Intermediate rank-related pay raises can be regularized, to reflect increases in minor rank.
