NOTES:
 
1.   Basic pay rate for Academy Cadets/Midshipmen and ROTC members/applicants is $1,185.00.
2.   The amount of the maximum combat zone tax exclusion in effect for a qualifying month equals the sum of the basic pay for the senior enlisted member (grade E-9) payable (Basic Pay – Enlisted, Note 3) and the amount of hostile fire or imminent danger pay actually payable to the officer for the qualifying month.
3.   For rank titles, see Volume 7A Comparable Grades.
4.   Creditable service to be taken into account for purposes of this table is active service as an enlisted member or as a warrant officer or as both an enlisted member and a warrant officer, in the case of a commissioned officer on active duty who is paid from funds appropriated for active-duty personnel; or a commissioned officer on active Guard and Reserve duty.  Effective November 24, 2003, creditable service to be taken into account for purposes of this table in the case of a commissioned officer is service as an enlisted member or as a warrant officer, or as both an enlisted member and a warrant officer, for which more than 1,460         points have been credited to the officer for the purposes of title 10, U.S.C. § 12732(a)(2).
5.   These rates do not apply to DOM students of the USUHS who do not have over 4 years (i.e., at least 4 years and 1 day) of active duty service as an enlisted member or as a warrant officer or as both an enlisted member and a warrant officer.  See the Basic Pay – Officers table for applicable rates.  DOM USUHS students with over 4 years of prior enlisted and/or warrant officer service are entitled to the O-1E rate of basic pay in this table during such active duty periods.  Also see subparagraphs 010202.A.8.
