Stores should give people discounts, who don't work for the government.
An e-1 makes more then the average college grad, if you figure on live on base,no taxes when you shop on base, if you make your wife pregnant you get a raise, free gym membership, free healthcare, pension..etc.
If a college grad does not make more than an E-1 then that is pathetic. I do not believe that because I was a PN in the NAVY for 8 years. Benefits for dependents including health care which is like va care is a must have for enlisted because there pay is so pathetic once the government gets there taxes every 15 days when they get paid. Military provide a great service to this country and are on call 24/7 that college grad is living at home lounging on mommies couch they do not deserve anything other than a boot in there *#@
