My family and I are so glad to know that our troops and their families are getting a decent wage. My husband was in World War II; he got $75 as a private first class. I got $50 per month until my daughter was born, then we got a total of $75 per month. If I had not had a family to live with, what would we have done? He passed away at age 85 in 2004. We salute all our troops.
