I believe Airborne pay is an extra $150 and I think Imminant Danger/Hostile Fire pay is another $225.

To get paid Jump Pay, you actually have to be slotted in a position that requires Jump Status, you don't just get jump pay for being Airborne Qualified.

When you deploy, you have different pay, if you are married or have dependents you get Family Separation Pay, then you have two different Combat Pays...altogether it equals around $525.

HDP Location - $100
HFP/IDP - $225
FSH - $250 (only if you're married)
If you're on active jump status you'll get $100 or $150, can't remember.

Your pay, including all the extra that you might get besides base pay is tax-free while deployed in a combat zone. If you reenlist in that combat zone & get a bonus that's also tax-free.
