Money! You get twelve grand as a recruit in training. That's pathetic consiering how sh!t life as a nod is. And about sixteen grand when you pass training. Again, sh!t for what you have to do. Personally I couldn't give a frig about the queen or this country. I want money in my pocket and expect to be paid accordingly. If the army and marines don't start paying it's combat soldiers better, nobody will bother joining because what is in it for them?
