Whatever we're paying them, it's not enough.

Dittos!

It is way past time to quit treating the defenders of freedom as though they were worth less than paper-pushing bureaucrats.

Bad move.

USMC routinely does most of the SF missions. In fact CA is a reserve mission. Few of the nine or so SF missions are not performed by Marines, such as SR and UW.

If they don't get the bonus, it will hurt retention.

The Defense Department has approved a series of incentives for members of elite Special Operations Forces who remain in the military, including a $150,000 bonus for the most experienced and highly trained combat personnel who promise six additional years in uniform, military officials said Saturday.

These guys give credibility to our war on terror. They should be earning six figures a year.
