There is, among military personnel and their dependents, a perception that benefits provided to them by the Government and their respective services have been victims of a steady erosion in value. The purpose o-f this thesis is to determine if the four major areas of benefits (retirement, housing, medical, and commissary/exchange) have decreased, increased or remained constant from base year 1967 to 1937. The conclusion reached in this thesis is that retirement and medical benefits have, in fact, seriously eroded over the past 20 years; commissary benefits have been slightly improved, exchange benefits have remained constant, and housing benefits have increased as to the number or government quarters available, but decreased in the quality of those quarters, and service members forced to live off base have suffered erosion in the purchasing power of the housing allowance.
