British SAS get a pay rise to stop attrition

I wonder if $100,000 is worth it to put your life on the line so often. Mind you there are perks, You get to visit interesting countries, meet interesting people, and kill them. :)

August 15, 2006: The British Special Air Service (SAS) is giving their commandos, especially their most experienced ones, a raise.

Top pay for senior SAS NCOs has been increased to nearly $100,000 a year. The pay boost is in response to the growing number of attractive civilian job offers SAS operators are getting.

With only about a thousand commandos to begin with, the SAS can ill-afford to lose any of them. It costs millions of dollars, and 5-10 years, to get a trained and experienced operator. But the demand, from civilian firms, for security experts, is growing.

Those who have served with the SAS are considered top candidates for these jobs, and are being offered far more than $100,000 a year
