Paid cash for everything I own the last 5 years including 2 turbo Miatas and everything on them, no credit cards. About $20k of my income is tax free, with another $15-20k reported.

How many years do you have in, Sam? Any prior enlisted service?

I'm guessing an 03 base pay + BAH + BAS = 1 million gazillion fuffillion dollars. Or at least compared to an E3 @ <2 years.
Yeah? try an E1 @ <2 years

If you come in with out a highschool diploma and areny hispanic or black unless you go through ocs you will always be behind on your points compared to them. gotta love the affirmative action.

Points don't come into play until you're an NCO.

Look at any points calculator though, race doesn't get factored in.

I don't think I would've joined if I had to start as an E1 (no offense). How are you still E1 though? Did you JUST join or did you get into trouble?

I should have stayed in

65-70K, Hawaii; would they have thrown me out after 40 years?

57K base, over 60K w/ overtime. I pay cash for cars except my wife's Trailblazer SS that we just bought and I put 10K down on it. I have 6 cars and 5 are paid for but not worth as much combined as the 1 that is not. I put more into my house than my cars since I know that is appreciating as opposed to my cars. My wife is a Realtor (I did not include her pay in the poll) and made just under 50K this year (her 3rd year) and hopes to double that next year. I hope she does too.
