Obama Cuts Hazard Pay For Soldiers In Harms Way

Posted by Brian
This is total BS. The new prorated pay will only be received by military men and women if they are being shot at or in a hostile zone. (Read Marine's Facebook post) Just being in a combat zone no longer merits the pay. So being stationed in Afghanistan will no longer merit the pay unless the soldier is actually out on patrol, or if the compound is taking fire?
Once again. Total BS.

Starting this month, some troops will begin receiving less Imminent Danger Pay when a new policy takes effect that will prorate the standard $225 monthly IDP stipend.
Under the new policy, troops will be paid only for the actual days they spend in the danger pay location, defense officials said Thursday.
Under the previous policy, troops who spent any portion of the month in a danger pay location received danger pay for the entire month.
