With Haliburton selling them $650 toilet seats, I'd bet the cost is STAGGERING

Ok, there's a lot that goes into this. Where do you draw the line between feeding and clothing them (us) and paying them. First off, you get your base pay which goes by rank/grade and time in service. Then, you get the BAS that the other person mentioned. Then you sometimes have the option to live on or off the installation. If you live off base and are state side, your pay for housing usually goes by the area code you live in and you get a set amount, due to rank/grade. If you are overseas, it's a bit bigger of an equation, but basically you get a cap amount, and the government pretty much gives you what you need, up to a certain amount, and then they give you utility money. Plus, you have to figure in COLA, and clothing allowances, possibly bonuses for certain jobs, hazardous duty pay, sometimes tax-free pay, and other benefits, like almost free schooling, cheap health care, and life insurance. I could go on for days. Long story short, most of the time a military members paycheck is not that big, and for what they are doing, and the crazy hours being worked, it isn't enough. Truth is the compensation helps in making up for the money we don't see by paying for things that we would have to pay for anyways.

Nothing. It comes out of their paychecks. When our enlisted men and women are deployed they are deducted $274.00 per month for food ( and this includes if they live in the barracks on base). They are given a $300-$400 per year clothing allowance.

I just read in Soldiers Magazine that the average soldier takes $17,000 of gear with them into a combat zone. I also know that the Basic allowance for Sustenance is about 275.00 a month. The combat gear is an Army stat, but the BAS thing is service-wide. If you consider the soldiers that eat at the Dining Facility into this, hat BAS number would be substantially reduced due to the fact that buying food en masse is cheaper. in short, you have asked a very tough question and I'm not sure if it could be answered.

Nothing, it is part of our pay that we earn, just like vacation time for you. It is part of our pay package. AND it drives all military personnel CRAZY when you lump all of us into the terms of TROOPS and Soldiers. We are not troops or soldiers, we are Sailors, Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coasties. If you are not sure which title goes to whom, look it up. Also do you also complain about all the BS money wasting that goes on by the Union Teachers and Administators in all public school systems. Kids in America today are dumb as rocks and teachers run around saying they are starving to death. BS. Take on a local cause!

Somethings such as your Q.U. can not be answered because you cannot put a "price" on our great men/women that defend our country.
