Abstract : Over the years, Armed Forces military pay systems have performed reliably during peacetime. But, some claim that major components of the pay system sputtered and failed during the Gulf War. This executive research paper examines military pay operations in the Gulf in terms of doctrine, past conflicts, standards of service, and customer expectations. It proposes creation of a Paymaster General of the Armed Forces to orchestrate joint pay operations and future battlefield finance support. The paper concludes with 10 challenges which the Paymaster General must undertake to build a joint pay system for the future.
