No reason I see for a SMSgt to get less than a single Capt with only 6 years TIS just for the mere fact that as people get older they they tend to have more stuff and larger families. I haven't checked the actual rates to compare the SMSgt to Capt, so this was just an example.
    Well I looked at the BAH Rates and O-1's were given more BAH than Sgt's every single time. An E-6 made about 5 dollars more than a O1. An o2 made more than an E-7, bullcrap

    Nope not an Officer, yeup i know i spell like crap and my grammer sucks although you didnt mention it. What gave you the sense of entitlement that you deserve something without earning it, i know i made a stupid decision and didnt go to college before i came in. You had the same choice to make and you chose your path whatever that is. Officers chose the path to go to college and live a better life.

    Nope they get payed more because they have demonstrated meeting deadlines, holding responsability, intelligence, writing ability, critical thinking abilities, not to mention they also met the required standard to get the benifits, you havnt. As an O-1 they will be directly held responsabile for more lives and euipment then you and required to make tactical decisons and plan operations. A good Lt will seek recommendadtions from more experinced members of his Platoon so he can make the best informed decision. If something goes wrong the commander isnt going to put a Sgts ass on the chopping block it will be your Plt Commanders butt on the line. I Agree ,a degree is just a piece of paper and i ve seen some complete idiots with them however they worked to meet the standard you didnt.

    Our Corps gives us ample oppurtunity to move up in rank and earn a commision. If you fail to take advantage of it it is your own fault no one is limiting your upward mobility but yourselves. If you hate officers because they earn more then you too bad they earned it and took advantage of the available Marine Officer Programs that you also can do. If you dont want the money then dont do it its that simple.
