Cadets at service academies are not paid the equivalent of Sergeant(E-5) pay. They are paid less than $900 per month, below E-1 pay, and a substantial amount of that is subtracted for uniforms, ending in as low as $110 per month in their first year of school. Check the military pay tables, they list cadet pay. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:31, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
