You are very short sighted. There are a lot of reason to join the military outside of the money. And honestly, $2800 is A LOT more than many people are making right now, and its more than enough to live comfortably on when you do it right. Trust me, I know, my husband is in the military. Thankfully there are some people in the country who care about more things than just "the money".

Many people take a job for more than just monetary reasons. The military may not pay much, but you also learn some very valuable skills. Most people I know that come out of the military make excellent paramedics, nurses, and I know two that are going to school learn more about the mechanics of various types of aircraft. They all learned skills in the military that allowed them to have a head start on their education back home and later got excellent jobs.

if someone didn't join, your husband may not live in a society where he is free to make as much or as little as he wants. in most parts of the country, you can live very comfortably on 2800 a month if you get benefits.
