Editorial: Don’t cut miliary pay boost in 2014

Email

The Pentagon is proposing only a 1 percent salary increase in 2014 for the troops of the United States.

This proposed increase would be the lowest increase since 1963, more than 50 years.

This was a tough decision for the Pentagon, which has to balance the nation’s military needs with the budget needs of the nation.

That is not an easy task.
