Washington, D.C.-There are a lot of different options that can occur during hard times and one of them is to join the United States military. And now, the Obama Presidential Administration has added a number of issues that make it even more attractive.
The new stimulus bill offers some support for military families, including a 2.9 percent raise in military pay for 2010, and also other areas that will help to give families more assistance. The Military features a guaranteed income, health insurance, dental coverage and other benefits for the whole family.
We went to an all volunteer military in the 1970?s, and in difficult economic times it still is a great way to make sure that your family is provided for. The overall emphasis now is to help different families and Servicemembers to be able to provide quality of life including medical and dental and the other benefits.
Many people that have been enlisting are actually requesting to serve in combat, both because of the training available and for the different opportunities that come from increased combat and hazard pay, as well as veterans and GI Benefits that are available for people serving in a War Zone.
