    Re: Pay during Basic

    I was waiting for someone to clarify this. That $38,000 a year with 30 days paid vacation specialist salary is for full-time AD only. Otherwise, I would have quit my full-time job yesterday!

    Regular ARNG salary for a weekend warrior specialist (1 weekend a month, 2 weeks in the summer) is a little over $250 a month, give or take a few dollars according to your state. You do get full-time AD benefits (Tricare, BAH & full-time pay) while you're away at BCT/AIT or if you're deployed but that's about it.
    I will refer you to the question in the post about pay in basic.

        I didn't mean any disrespect, Chaplain4me. I just wanted to emphasize the difference between active duty and part-time ARNG pay and benefits for those they may not pay close attention to those parameters.

              This post is awesome. It made me laugh. But it will be (pay that is) in the year 2250.

                  Just for clarification--This is the original question I read from jmooi:

                  Originally posted by jmooi View Post

                  This is the answer I saw in response to that question:

                  you get paid as a Specialist.....it's about 40K a year. Depends on where you live and stuff. Depends on if you have an apartment, house, dependants and stuff too. Check this cacluator out it's pretty sweet.
                  Then I read this subsequent answer in addition to the original statement made above:

                  You also have to figure in 30 days paid vacation.
                  This is the response from another forum member that assumed the same conclusion from following the thread:

                  This is only for a full year, the OP is only going to basic and AIT lol. He won't be getting the full year base pay. Don't raise this poor man's hopes Chappy!

                    The post is amusing, I enjoy reading these things for serious answers as well as a little humor. I was just wondering if everyone gets paid as a private in basic and then when you pass they bump you up to E-4 or if you get paid as an E-4 during basic no matter what because you already have a degree. Thanks for all the input.

                          This post answers my question. I own a house and I have student loans to pay. I needed to make sure that when I'm gone for Basic, my bills will be covered with what I'd be getting paid.
