I have no idea what the average salary (pay) was for GI's during WW2, and doubt that anyone can come up with an answer -- but I CAN tell you that when I went into the service in 1943 I was paid $50.00 a month. Remember, however, that that $50 was worth a lot more in those days than it is today. As I passed up the ranks I did get advancements, but I can't remember any amounts. Sorry! vcs
