Oh what a weekend.
I am in the Army Reserve as an Information Systems Manager. I would be a decent job if the pay were better. I might actually consider going back active in the Army for about 25,000 more a year. I don't understand how they expect soldiers to sign up and stay in for such little money. I know the Military retirement is nice but its not worth taking a 30,000 $ a year pay cut for the next 6 years to finish out my enlistment. simple math. take a 30,000 pay cut to make 21,000 more after 10 years. They way I figure it an E-7 needs to make about 100,000$ in order to make it worth while. But they pay barely over 50,000$ Beginning Unix Sysadmins make 65,000$
