1975 US Military Basic Pay Charts

On October 7, 1974, President Gerald R. Ford sent correspondence titled, "117 - Message to the Congress on Federal Civilian and Military Pay Increases." The letter indicates that after much consideration, and per authority granted in Public Law 93-419, further promulgated in Executive Order 11812, he chose a pay raise of 5.52% on recommendation of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Chairman of the United States Civil Service Commission. The recommended raise of 7.22% made by the Advisory Committee on Federal Pay and the 8.4% proposal put forth by the Federal Employees Council were ruled out because of "our current economic situation."
