The Military has a wide variety of benefits ranging from complete health care to commissary and exchange shopping. A recent GAO review of active duty military benefits noted that when comparing the types of benefits offered by the military with those offered in the private sector, all the core benefits offered by most private sector firms-retirement pay, health care, life insurance, and paid time off-are offered by the military. In fact, the GAO review found that military benefits in some cases exceed those offered by the private sector.
