Abstract : The author argues that the lack of a coherent articulated theory of military compensation has been a major factor in the failure of past military compensation studies, reviews, and legislative initiatives. He urges that this intellectual void be filled as a major priority by the 5th Quadrennial Review of Military Compensation, and suggests criteria that should be followed in developing such a theory. The views are the author's own and do not necessarily represent the position of the Department of Defense.
