Thank you my lovely government for forcing my husband to be a Drill Sergeant in this shit hole of a state and now you want to cut the special duty pay!

What is next to be cut from out pay?? Ohh well.. I guess we all need to start gearing up for pay cuts, I've heard they are looking into cutting BAH/base pay and benefits.

I'm sorry, but drill instructors shouldn't be getting special pay anyway.

What's the special pay for?  I'm a little confused...

I know recruiters get extra pay of some type but not sure if the same goes for DI?

Ugh, I hope this isn't true for AF BMT instructors because that would stink. As for why, it's because this job is HARD and they are trying to get more guys to do it because they never have enough. Sometimes special duty pay attracts a few more volunteers and/or convinces your significant other it's worth it. I hope this isn't true because it would really screw with my budget but nothing to be done....

I can say that retention recruiters were told their pay was getting cut starting next month. It will get cut in half, then next year the full amount. The only source I have is my friends husband is a retention recruiter and was told this.
