Wednesday Evening, May 29, 1957. Army Newspaper Plugs Service Career Benefits TOKYO—Uncle Sam's fighting men, with their good salaries and fancy fringe benefits, are better off than Uncle Sam's civilians, ac cording to what you hear on the Army radio or read in the Army paper here. Those who join up and stay in can count on good pay, bonuses, promotions, exciting work, housing, medical benefits—plus a lot of other nice things—and job security not to be found elsewhere, the Army says. Furthermore, a promise made by the Army is kept and this can not always be said about offers and promises made by private industry. At least that is what the troops here are told. A series of four articles on why It is advantageous to be a member of the armed forces rather than a civilian has just, been published ,(n Pacific Stars and Stripes. Attention was called to an enlisted man serving with an antiaircraft in Japan. He was a radar repairman and had toyed with the Idea of getting out and taking a job in private industry. Big He-enlistment Bonus A bit of investigating, however, showed him what he could get by staying in the service. With five years of service behind him, he would be eligible for a six-year enlistment bonus of $1,090.80. He also could be assigned to the metropolitan area of his choice. He also could get more education at a special school'and be in line ' for further promotions and pay Increases. Tho American serviceman gets nil this because of the military career incentive program drawn up by the Department of Defense to match military opportunities with opportunities on the "outside." Its features provide for a reenlistment bonus, a firm system of rank and pay, medical care and financial assistance for dependents and survivors, plus other benefits. The serviceman Is fed, housed and clothed. He can buy at below- commercial prices at the post ox change and commissary. There is guaranteed retirement pay. Survey KcHults Stars and Stripes called attention to a survey made earlier this year by the U.S. Air Force which covered ex-servicemen who left the military to take what they expected would be High-paying civilian jpbs. Most planned to cash in on the skills they had learned in the service. The poll revealed that only 20 per cent of 3,000 ex-airmen got jobs based on what they had learned in the service. And for these, the average beginning-wage was $60 a week and the average current wage was $73 a week. Stars and Stripes said this was "less than Air Force salaries and benefits for the same skills." More benefits are being added all the time. Pay boosts ranging from six to 25 per cent came through for the regulars in 1955. Survivor benefits are up. Effective next Jan. 1, all active duty personnel become eligible for Social Security benefits, too. It's not just the enlisted man who- enjoys all this superior life in the services. The officers have it good, too, and that includes ex. tra pay—as much as $100 per month— for some doctors and dentists.
