Servicemembers will still be able to receive hardship duty pay, hostile fire/imminent danger pay and other incidental expenses related to their deployment with the transition to Operation New Dawn.
Imminent danger or hostile fire pay is paid when servicemembers serve in a location designated as a combat zone or direct support area. While deployed all pay for warrant officers and enlisted members is tax exempt, while officers are exempt from taxes for up to $7,611.30 each month they serve in an eligible area.
The President designates combat zones through an executive order.
