I am some what annoyed at the Armed Forces in recent months. I am currently serving in Afghanistan and my family are living back in Germany. In December I had an allotment of 2100 Euros placed into my german bank account at the FFR exchange rate of 1.5. The exchange rate has been at this level since February 2004 when i first arrived in Germany. In January this year i had an increment on my pay but the FFR dropped to 1.41 which means that even though I had a pay rise i only had 2000 Euros in my German bank thus loosing out on money. Then in February i came out to Afghanistan and started receiving LSA which then boosted my money up to 2200 Euros. I have just found out that the exchange rate this month has dropped again to 1.31 and now i am only getting 1800 euros in my German bank. I am dumbfounded that for the last 4 years even with the massive fluctuations that have occurred in the money world that they have kept the exchange rate the same to then drop the rate twice in 3 months. I am now earning less than i was 4 months ago even though i have received an increment and am receiving level 2 LSA. The armed forces have just managed to find another way of screwing its guys over.
