Hardship Duty Pay of $150 per month as of 01 January 2001. The Hardship
Duty Pay is paid to troops who are permanently assigned to areas where
it is authorized or who serve 30 consecutive days of temporary duty
in those areas. Several factors are considered in determining whether
a location qualified for the pay: climate, physical and social isolation,
sanitation, disease, medical facilities, housing, food, recreational
and community facilities, political violence, harassment and crime.
The extra pay provides meaningful financial recognition to troops
assigned in areas where living conditions are substantially below
