In 2006 the lowest rate of pay for an enlisted (private) soldier in the US army was $1178.10 per month according to the army website. This was for new recruits with less than 4 months experience. After four months it went up by about $100 a month.

For soldiers entering a combat zone like Iraq or Afghanistan, there is an additional $225 per month "hazardous duty pay." This is not subject to federal taxes although it could be subject to state taxes. There are also other possible payments such as Family Separation Allowance, which depend on the individual soldier's circumstances.
