I'm assuming that if someone is asking this they are thinking of enlisting in the Marine Corps. Wise decision. The basic monthly pay for someone attending recruit trainig is 1203.90. This is for your first 4 months in any military service. After 4 months it goes up to 1301.40. This is assuming you come in as a Private and do not get any meritorious promotions in your contract or while in Recruit Training. All food, medical, dental and housing expenses are also paid for you. If you have no bills you can pocket the entire paycheck every month. A full version of the military pay tables is available online at If you are stationed overseas you will also be paid a Cost of living Allowance because it costs more to live overseas. All services pay is based off the same chart so the pay will be the same in any service. I hope this answers your question.
