    I for one believe that the 28% capital gains tax is excessive!!!

    Just go on deplyoment, then it won't be taxed. But since you already know that i'm assuming that you don't want to.

    Re: reenlistment bonuses

    Of all the things people are complaining about this is so small. What are you people? mercenaries? If you're in a combat zone and re-enlist it's tax free, if not then join the rest of us that had to pay and will continue to pay taxes. I received my 1st bonus in 1980, second in 84 both taxed, try this on people, I had my zone 3 cancelled because of boat space then reinstated 4 months later just before the end of the fiscal year. You think you're the only one's to have sacrificed? Well Vietnam 75 with 3/9, Beirut 76 w/3/2, IO in 79 for Jimmy Carter and twice more to Lebanon with the 24th(82&83) and not to forget GWI in 90-91, quit complaining and enjoy whatever you get.

    Kenny10, good reply when someone disagrees with you "shut the hell up" , once again you have proved the mercenary point, get out make 80k+ and pay major taxes on that, help keep social security going you freeloader(FYI:I have combat action with gold star and that was prior to this mess that baby scrub got us into).

    I received a bonus this year and as much as it hurt to see 21K taken from it I was prepared for it (50K more then I had the day before). However, come tax time I am now above 100K for the year and now owing money even after claiming married and zero for the year. I have more heart burn about being in a higher tax bracket (owing money in April) then paying up front, so instead of getting any of the money taken from me this year I owe some. I think it should be taxed up front (if not in a Combat Zone) but not calculated into your yearly income during tax time.

    I'm a Navy FMF Corpsman and I do not get ANY bonus. Been to Iraq and afghanistan with the Marines and a 15 month tour with the Army. Be happy with what you get because most of us have to deploy for our bonus.
