Air Force Service Members With the Hardest Jobs Getting a Pay Cut. But Ukraine’s Military Got $54 Billion?

Published on

Parachute testing for the U.S. Air Force will be less rewarding.

Air Force personnel who are in the most dangerous and difficult jobs face a pay cut. Depending on their job, each will be losing between $75-$450 per month or $900-$5400 annually.

According to the 2023 Fiscal Budget Estimate report, Special Duty Assignment Pay (also known as SDAP) is an additional pay “to compensate enlisted military personnel who serve in duties that are extremely difficult.”

Pay cuts will take effect on October 1, 2022, at the start of the next fiscal year.

This year, the Biden administration has already sent millions of dollars to Ukraine’s military.

According to the budget report 44 workers with special duty (SD), assignments are in danger of losing their pay.

Enlisted airmen who work with special government agencies
Combat controllers
Pararescue operators
Nuclear enterprise airmen
Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) operators
Enlisted pilots and weapons directors
Parachute instructors and those with the test parachute program
SD pay is for enlisted personnel who meet these requirements:

1. Be in pay grade E-3 or above
2. Be on active duty and entitled to basic pay, or, for reservists performing
inactive duty training (IDT), be entitled to “drill pay”;
3. Have completed any special schooling or on-the-job training (OJT)
required for the special duty assignment/specialty [Note: OJT has to be at
least as long as the school’s course of instruction and must result in the
the member being fully qualified for the assignment/specialty];
4. Have been certified (and recertified annually) as qualified for and are
actually serving in the special duty assignments or specialties in either a
permanent duty or temporary duty status; and
5. Meet any other eligibility criteria set by the military service of the member.

This is yet more insult to our armed forces, courtesy of the Biden administration. The Pentagon published financial guidance last month for soldiers who are struggling to cope with Biden’s inflation. The Pentagon also suggested that service personnel apply for food stamps. We still have a blank check to pay for Ukraine’s military.

It makes me wonder what the reason is.
