    Ok then please explain why you deserve equal benifits as a person who holds a higher level of responsability then you.

It has been used in new ways online, sometimes at the end of a message "to signal that the rest of the message is forthcoming." [5]

    Today, extended ellipsis of two, seven, ten, or even dozens of periods have become common constructions in internet chat rooms and text messages.[6]
    "Elliptical commas", or, commas used in plurality for the effect of ellipsis or multiple ellipsis, have also grown in popularity online—though no style journal or manual has yet embraced them."

    Grammar guides still discourage placing a conjunction at the start of a sentence, such as "And". If you do, a comma is required (normally) after the conjunction.:tongue:

    Just saying.

    .........guess I am not so educated after all.

    I didn't; I asked a question. Do you mind answering the question fully, now?

    Officers get more BAH because it's part of their overall compenstation package.

    So you are of the opinion that Enlisted with degrees should get more BAH? And officers without a degree should get less? Interesting.

    Exactly....and why would anyone want to join the military as an officer if they didn't get paid more? Without the perks of more pay/better housing, the "status" of being an officer would get old very quick.

    The only officers without degrees are LDO/CWOs. And many of those have their degrees, too.

    No. Because no matter how much more education the NCO has, the Officer still has more responsibility. It's not about education, it's not about BAH, it's not about time in service, it's about responsibility. NCOs do not hold the same level of responsibility as Officers, which is why they get paid more.

    If you want to get paid more, do what I did. Get your commission and stop whining. I get tired of hearing about this all across the military. Blah blah blah, they get paid more. I tell you what. You can come to my unit and be in charge for a day. When something goes wrong, whether it's your fault or not, you can have my LTC give you a call and tear you a new a-hole for a while. Then maybe you'll understand.

    I swear, this really bothers me, A LOT.

    Back to BAH. It's all about the perks. If I got the same BAH as a E-3, I'd have a serious issue with that as a O-2 with a much higher level of responsibility and education (yeah I know, I'm sure there's some E-3 with a Master's Degree somewhere Got it). You can replace E-3 with E-7, and it still wouldn't matter.
