Current Military Pay Chart: Education

Keep in mind that military pay charts are consistent across the board and the only real variable in terms of making more money is the tenure involved. The point is that, if you want to earn more money, you need to focus on your ability to be promoted to a higher rank. Enlisted individuals are able to achieve a commission through hard work, becoming highly proficient in his or her MOS / AFSC / Rating, and by pursuing a higher level of education. Obtaining a college degree can be extremely beneficial for a member of the Armed Forces. Not only does it help in terms of benefiting your military career, but it is also something that will be highly valuable when you separate from the service.
