    get paid to take someone's CQ/CQ runner duty over the weekend or holidays, same goes for guard duty. I made $200 over one NYE weekend where I had guard duty on 12/31, but I pulled guard on 12/30 and 1/1. 3 days straight guard duty. But hey I made $100 a day.

    If you want a second job, you have to have your Commander permission. I did this too at Riley as a Pizza Delivery guy. Your Commander can revoke his permission at any time if he feels you aren't doing your first job, The Army, not as good as before.

    Base Pay (Tax Free, excepting social security and medicare) + $225 Combat Pay + $250 Family Separation Pay (after the first month) + 100$ Hardship Duty Pay + BAS (Basic Allowance for Subsistence, I believe it's about 323$.) And access to a special savings account (Military Savings Deposit Program) you can contribute up to 10,000 dollars a year of your pay and allowances to. It has a guaranteed return of 10% per year (The returns on this are taxable, however).

    You can get a second job if you wish. However, you need permission from your commander to accept a job off-duty and military duty has priority. If you have CQ or something similar you're just going to have to miss your time at work to serve your military duty.

    a second job is possible only under certain conditions and only with your CO's permission. the job cannot bring discredit( no pole dancing for instance) it may never interfere with your military duties. you may not while in a training status
