Summary: In the late 1990s, the military services were facing considerable recruiting and career retention problems. Reasons for these included the end of the Cold War, private-sector job opportunities in the 1990s boom, increasing desire for and availability of a college education, rising living standards that put military housing and lifestyles at a disadvantage, and greater sensitivity among personnel to frequent family separation and overseas rotations. In responding, Congress was mindful of how low pay had contributed to decreased recruit quality in the late 1970s. It authorized larger pay raises, increased special pays and bonuses, more recruiting resources, and repeal of planned military retired pay reductions for future retirees.
