Did you know that the starting pay for a cadet (a private) in the California Highway Patrol is $5,717.00?
Did you know that as of 2017, the starting pay for a private in the United States armed forces is only $1,633.50?
Did you also know that the starting pay at McDonalds, Burger King, Jack in the Box is $1,920.00 per month?

So why the difference in pay?
Why are our veterans receiving less than an employee at McDonalds, Burgers king, or Jack in the Box?

Did you know that since establishing the California Highway Patrol in 1929, only 226 officers have died in the line of duty?
Did you know that since 2003, at least 268,000 veterans have died in the line of duty?
So what career is more hazardous?

Too, every night a California Patrolmen and an investigator with the Federal Bureau of investigations goes home to their family and sleeps in a nice cozy bed with a roof over their head.
Yet often our veterans may not see their families for up to a year or more, and never have a roof over their head.
