History of combat pay by Brandon R Gould ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This paper traces the evolution of combat pay in the U.S. military since its origin as Badge Pay for combat infantry in World War II. Initially it was only partially linked to combat for infantry personnel and was not available to non-infantry personnel in combat. During the Korean War, combat pay was available to members serving in combat units or injured or killed by hostile fire. In Vietnam, eligibility for Hostile Fire Pay was extended to everyone serving in the combat zone. After the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983, eligibility was expanded by the introduction of Imminent Danger Pay, which recognized the risk of physical harm in conditions short of open warfare. There has been a strong tendency to retain designations of imminent danger areas for extended periods even when the risk of injury is extremely low. The purpose of combat pay has changed from recognition of those enduring the worst hazards and hardships of frontline duty to recognition of any degree of risk."--DTIC
Cost Analysis of the Military Medical Care System: Data, Cost Functions, and Peacetime Care ( )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In FY 1992, the Congress mandated that DoD conduct a comprehensive study of the military medical-care system. As part of that effort, IDA was tasked to analyze the cost structure of military hospitals. IDA first established a baseline medical expenditure of $15.6 billion for FY 1990. That estimate is about 10% higher than previous official estimates. IDA also developed models that relate cost to workload for individual military hospitals. IDA's models were based on data from the Medical Expense and Performance Reporting System (MEPRS), which is known to understate some of the cost elements. As part of the modeling process, IDA developed adjustment factors that render MEPRS data comparable to prices charged in the civilian sector. These adjustment factors range between 11% and 17%. Finally, IDA used its models to project in-house medical costs under four analytical cases. The various cases involve expansion or contraction in system-wide capacity, corresponding changes in workload and, in a few instances, competition for enrollment of beneficiaries. The Office of the Director (Program Analysis and Evaluation) combined IDA's cost projections for the cases with its own analysis, and published the overall study findings under separate cover
Case Studies in Reserve Component Volunteerism: A Composite Battalion Task Force for the U.S. Army Element of the Multinational Force and Observers Mission, Sinai by John R Brinkerhoff ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is one of a series of case studies prepared to illustrate how volunteerism has been used to gain access to National Guard and Reserve capabilities in support of recent military operations. The case studies have been prepared by reference to official documents and reports and interviews with unit members and other persons involved in the operation. This study tells about the special composite battalion task force the U.S. Army formed as part of the Multinational Force and Observers mission in the Sinai Desert. The battalion is comprised of active Army, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve personnel. Thus far, no major problems have been encountered and it is likely that a well-trained, fairly cohesive unit will result from the long and costly process. This case study serves as an example of how volunteer reservists can be used to accomplish an Army mission in situations where time is available for deliberate planning and lengthy preparations. This case study is a background paper for a report on the role of volunteerism in Reserve accession policy being prepared for the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs
Combat risk and pay : theory and some evidence by Curtis Simon ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Because U.S. military personnel currently receive $225 Hostile Fire Pay/Imminent Danger Pay (HFP/IDP) per month for serving in a combat zone, independent of the level of combat risk, servicemembers who face low levels of risk may be overcompensated. However, because overall compensation must be sufficient to attract volunteers who undertake high levels of risk, it is appropriate to examine the relationship between combat risk and total cash compensation. Using data on enlisted personnel for the period 2003-2009, we estimated that an increase in risk of death of one per thousand personnel was associated with an additional $551 per person in annual compensation. Quadratic estimates reveal that compensation increases in combat risk at a decreasing rate, even when the model is estimated separately for individuals who should have similar preferences toward combat risk. However, when the relationship between compensation and risk was estimated using data only on combat zone observations, the relationship was smaller, statistically less precise, and often negative."

Case Studies in Reserve Component Volunteerism: The 175th Fighter Group, Maryland National Guard, Over Bosnia by John R Brinkerhoff ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is one of a series of case studies prepared to illustrate how volunteerism has been used to gain access to National Guard and Reserve capabilities in suppon of recent military operations. The case studies have been prepared by reference to official documents and repons and interviews with unit members and other persons involved in the operation. For two months in 1994, the 175th Fighter Group, Maryland Air National Guard, formed a Rainbow Detachment based at Aviano Air Base, Italy, as part of Operation Deny Flight, a NATO mission to monitor compliance with the UN ban on flights over Bosnia-Herzegovina. The 175th Rainbow Detachment's mission was to fly A- 10 missions in support of NATO's peacekeeping operations. The most noteworthy mission was a real attack on a Bosnian Serb tank. The report recounts the attack and makes observations about the course of the otherwise routine operation. This case study is a background paper for a report on the role of volunteerism in Reserve accession policy being prepared for the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs
Economic Principles of Liability and Financial Responsibility for Oil Pollution ( Book )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The paper examines the economic issues involved in the imposition of liability for the damages caused by disasters in general and major oil spills in particular. The conclusions reached are the following: Unlimited liability with absolute fault is to be preferred to limited liability when one takes the welfare of society as a whole into account; It may be desirable to levy fines on polluters above payment of damages; Oil companies do not have a right to carry on polluting activities; and The government should make certain that financial responsibility is provided for.
