Enlisted Annual Salary
Below is the FY 2007 Average Annual Salary Chart for military enlisted personnel.
It's really impossible to produce an actual annual salary chart. This is because there are many variables to military pay.
Some jobs are entitled to flight pay, continuation bonuses and special pay, and some jobs are not. Some people live in free on-base government quarters (barracks or base housing) and others live off-base and receive a housing allowance. The amount of the housing allowance depends on the person's location, and whether or not they have dependents.
The below chart shows average annual military salary for enlisted members, to include base pay, average housing allowance, monetary food allowance, and the "tax advantage" of untaxed allowances. The charts do not include items such as overseas housing allowance, overseas COLA (cost of living allowance), enlistment or reenlistment bonuses, or other bonuses and allowances that many servicemembers are entitled to.
For more information about pay and benefit changes for FY 2007, see FY 2007 Military Authorization Act.
Military pay is based upon grade (rank) and years of service:
Note: A square without an entry indicates that none of the services reported anyone currently serving in that grade/time-in-service.
