i am committed to doing the hpsp program, and am still debating between the air force and army. however, there seems to be a discrepancy between what an O-3 will make in the two branches. the air force recruiter says between 65k to 70k and the army recruiter says between 57k and 63k. i am somewhat confused because some army residents that i have talked to by phone have also confirmed that their counterparts in the air force make a little bit more. can someone clarify the different bonuses or pays that may exist?
