••• Official Army Photo

Base pay for members of the military 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 of responsibility. Military pay is subject to income taxes unless it is earned in a designated combat zone.

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, with "E" representing "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 a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.

In addition to pay, the military sometimes provides certain allowances for things such as clothing Allowance and for housing and cost of living, depending on circumstances.

2019 Military Reserve Warrant Officer Drill Pay Chart

While active duty members receive full-time pay, guard and 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.

These basic pay charts are for Reserve Warrant Officers of the United States Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard for the calendar year 2019, beginning January 1st as approved. The pay rates are monthly amounts. The "W" stands for "warrant officer," and the corresponding number represents pay grade.
