    Advertisements
    Hey Ladies,
    Quick questions...will my husband get paid during basic or after he has complteted basic. I was told by his recruter he'd be paid while he was in basic. He just left the 26th on June so he's only been in a little over a week. Should I be expecting direct deposit the 15th or the 1st of August? He enlisted in the Army...as an E-3
    Thanks
    Mrs. Samantha Northway

    He should get paid at some point. I don't know if it has changed or not, but when I went to basic back in 94, they paid everyone as E-1 while in basic and then gave everyone a bigger amount at the end based on your true pay grade. I was an E-3 when I went to basic as well, but like I said that was over 12 years ago so they might have changed things since then.

    I would expect it on the 15th allow one complete rotation for the pay to kick in. Also I don't know if this is still the case but they took out a HUGE chunk of dh's first check to pay for his sea bag so be prepared for that!

    yeah pretty much your first check is almost nothing because of the uniforms they have to pay for, after that they get regular paychecks.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.
