How Much Does a Second Lieutenant Make Per Year? Average Second Lieutenant Salary?

Second Lieutenants are officers holding a junior-level grade. However, after a certain period of service, they usually get promoted to the senior grade that is known as First Lieutenant. It is basically an administrative job, having specific assignments such as transportation and signal. A good number of Lieutenants are deployed in infantry units for a period of at least 1 year. Infantry units require a second Lieutenant for each platoon, referred to as platoon leader. A 2nd Lt Platoon Commander leads the daily activities such as imparting training, doing exercises and taking inventory. They are also responsible for the lives of their marines when in a combat situation. The average 2nd Lt salary is $55,000 yearly.
