What members of the military do is hard. They willingly put their lives on the line so that our nation can be free. What they are getting paid is simply a pittance and needs to be increased. They need to know that their nation appreciates what they do for them enough to pay a little extra in taxes so their salaries can increase.
Our military needs to be paid much more than they get. Military members are sacrificing a great deal of time away from home defending our country. The training they endure is not for the faint-hearted. They can suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and other mental issues. It is also hard to come back from duty and find a job.
