You do pay for it in the military. Through years of hard work at laughable pay.
If you calculate rent, food, full dental and medical the pay isnít that bad.
If youíre stationed in Miramar SD thatís the equivalent of about 3k per month plus pay. Not bad for poor kids that joined at 18. Unless youíre fulgy aka lil bill gates then thatís laughable pay.
And I wouldnít call standing around hard work
