When soldiers are sent to what bureaucrats call a hostile fire zone, they get imminent danger pay amounting to $150 a month. The troops still call it combat pay. When Maj. Martin Stanton and the rest of the infantrymen of the 2d Battalion, 87th Infantry, deployed to the Horn of Africa in December 1992 as the first U.S. Army battalion for Operation Restore Hope, this easily divided down to "Somalia on $5 a day".
