Washington a .civilians working for defense department agencies in Vietnam will continue to receive a 25 per cent pay Bonus while american servicemen there lose a Cost of living allowance. This Bonus called a Post differential is an incentive pay ment to civil service employee who Volunteer for duty in certain overseas locations where there Isan element of hardship. This differential pay is not be ing stopped the Pentagon said. It is required under the question was raised wit the defense department after it announced last week plans to halt on May 1 a Cost of living allowance now collected by More than 31,200 . Servicemen most of them stationed in the Saigon area. That action is calculated to save about $21 million a year. The approximately 450 .civilians working for defense department agencies in Vietnam receive Bonus pay estimated at about $1.1 million a year the Pentagon said. Officials said a study showed living expenses in Vietnam generally were lower than those inthe. United states. The military differential Range from $27 a month for privates to $84 a month for generals and was put into effect originally to help servicemen overcome excessive living costs in Vietnam. The defense department Esti mated that the salary base of the civilians in its employ in Viet Nam averaged about $10,000 a year. Thus a 25 per cent pos differential would yield about $2,500. All servicemen stationed i Vietnam receive $65 a month above their Normal pay for serv ice in a War zone. Some of them receive . Civilian employees of the de sense department also receive a quarters allowance if they do no live in government billets. This the Pentagon said amounts to what is normally considered to be a fair rental Cost within cer Tain limits. The civilians Are obligated Topay their regular income tax including on the 25 per cent differential. Enlisted men stationed in Viet Nam arc forgiven their Federal in come tax. Military officers Are granted a$500 a month Federal income tax exemption. Pacific stars & stripes thursday March 23, 1967
