    Look at the bottom of your LES (your check stub) and it will tell you what the reduction is for. How long ago did you enlist before you started drilling? Your life insurance is deducted from the day you joined, so if you havent drilled since joining then that just keeps adding up and is deducted from your first check.

      Yup, almost always a life insurance (SGLI) deduction. Make sure the coverage is what you agreed to. Twice I've had a recruiter/HR put in the max, despite me requesting (even on paper) to have a lowered amount.

        That is most likely the case with SGLI. They take it out every month, but if you miss a month of drill, it comes out of your next check. I had to pay for 2 months of SGLI in August because I enlisted in July, but didn't go to drill until August.

              Well then, like I said, look at your LES and it will say what the deduction is for at the bottom.

                    No. You don't pay for uniforms.
