...I went into the Air Force in May of 1960 my pay was $50 a month.  After basic training it went up to $60 a month.  At the end of four years and as an E-4 Airman First Class I was making $160 a month.  I was married with one child.  I did not get per diem and I did not get a housing allowance.  I saw this morning that it is costing us $1.2 million to keep on soldier in Afghanistan for one year.  Yes, you read it right.  $1.2 Million for one soldier for one year.  My how things have changed.  Maybe we should rethink the cost of that war not even counting all of the dead bodies.
