#2 "It's not their flight pay I'm concerned about. It's the base pay that Army aviators receive that really upsets me."

#3 ...Correct me if I'm wrong, but IIRC military retirees went without raises at all for a couple years during the Obama Administration, and we were told to suck it up for the Greater Good(TM).

Sadly, I expect a Federal jester judge to reverse this PDQ.

#5 AFAPK, fed raises are separate from military and the mil are still promised substantial ones next year. Also, the cancelled raises were for area cost of living adjustments not base pay increases.

Uhhhhh - He cancelled both. There was a 2.1% increase on the table for federal workers and an increase to "locality pay".

#7 Ran into a fella this summer I hadn't seen in over 25 years. He's a GM-15 who lives in Burke, VA. along with his GM-15 spousal unit. Something tells me he could give a shi* about the cancelled pay raise.
