Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Details of ’07 targeted pay raises unfold

More details on next year's pay raise, from Army Times:

The Pentagon’s plan calls for 2.2 percent increases in basic pay on Jan. 1, 2007, which would apply to basic pay and drill pay for all service members, with additional targeted raises of up to 8.3 percent on April 1 for noncommissioned officers, petty officers and warrant officers, Jonas said.

The 8.3 percent raise would apply to warrant officers, [Pentagon comptroller Tina W.] Jonas said. She was cagey about targeted pay increases for enlisted members, suggesting amounts would range from about 2.5 percent for E-5s to about 5.5 percent for E-9s.
