One thing is for sure, their pay must not be DEcreased as is being contemplated. It would help a lot if the DOD was not using Reserves for indefinite full time deployments without making financial arrangements for their families and careers, as a way of reducing regular force size... especially if America plans on continuing these international liberation adventures.

It is past time to reinstitute the Draft. There are no reserve Reserves.

The current pay scale is correct, but benefits are not. Most unit members do not live close enough to a base with a PX or Commissary to take advantage of them. The same applies to medical care. pay should not be adjusted, but something should be done about benefits.
