August 13, 2018, President Donald J. Trump signed the $700+ billion Fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act into law. The act is named for Arizona Sen. John S. McCain – authorizes a 2.6 percent military pay raise and increases the active duty forces by 15,600 service members as well as established the rates of pay for reserve military members.

Base pay is the same across all service branches and is based on rank and time in service, with pay raises according to years of creditable service.

There are two distinct career paths in the military: Commissioned Officers and Enlisted. The pay scales for each reflect their degrees responsibility.

Each military service has its own names for the various enlisted ranks (Navy and Coast Guard are the same). Most enlisted members enter the military at the lowest pay grade (E-1) and climb the pay scale to higher positions with greater pay. Enlisted pay grades range from E-1 through E-9 ("E" represents Enlisted).

To gain the pay advantages of a Commissioned Officer, some enter the military with a higher education degree and begin their military careers through one of the Officer Candidate Schools; some are high school graduates who attend a service academy or a civilian college while participating in an ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) program.

Military members receive a monthly base pay which is based on their rank and time in service.

Active duty members receive full-time pay, while guard an reserve members (who are not on active duty) receive part-time pay, or drill pay, depending on the number of drills they perform each month. Military pay is subject to income taxes unless it is earned in a designated combat zone. All branches of the U.S. military receive the same amount of base pay.
