Sorry to be a wet blanket but, the Act gives relief to reservist who are called to active duty.

After reading I realized this...*shrugs* Oh well... There is no quick fix for this problem. I owe I owe so off to work I go....

You guys are right that a lot of people don't have a clue how little the military makes. I have made more then my husband for years now. He is an E-7 with 14 years. I am a GS-11. I feel for the lower enlisted members. They live below the poverty line, which is sad. However like every other Non Commissioned Officers wife I have gone through that phase. It taught me to budget, realize I can't have a huge family, and to get myself educated and diversified and to be humble when it comes to work, because you have to be willing to do almost anything to keep your family afloat...Plus I know 101 ways to cook Ramen Noodles and Peas!!! *grin*

Ciao,

Alli
