The Defense Department removed 20 locations from its imminent danger pay list. The removal will go into effect on June 1 and will potentially affect tens of thousands of troops, Military Times reports.

    As of that date, service members deployed to these areas no longer will qualify for the $225 monthly imminent danger stipend. The change would affect thousands serving on land or on ships in those areas. […]

    Those locations that no longer will be designated as imminent danger areas are:

    ■ The four water areas of the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, and the Red Sea.

    ■ The water area and air space above the Persian Gulf.

    ■ The six land areas and air space above Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, and Montenegro.

    ■ The nine land areas of East Timor, Liberia, Haiti, Oman, Rwanda, Tajikistan, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgystan, and Uzbekistan.

Is this the same as what once was called "hazardous duty pay?"

Does this mean the Obama DOD doesn't think radical Islam (i.e terrorists), present any "imminent danger" now that Obama has healed the world?    **nononono*
Character still matters.  It always matters.

This administration inspires only one emotion in me and it isn't a good one!  :banghead:
