I think it depends on the geographical area you want to live in, and additional training you will go for. What are you career goals (what do you want to be doing 5 years from today)?

Come to Arizona. You should be able to start out at around 70K to 80K. Certs will increase you pay. AZ currently one of the hottest places for Tech jobs.

Depends what industry you're going into. Private Sector, Certificates + Depends on Experience (DOE) probably looking around $16-$20 starting. Government, look up job posting on usajobs.gov; some takes the 10 points preference in the competitive selection while many don't. Looking at around $18-$24. Medical, Medical IT training + Depends on Experiences (DOE). $20+ starting. Remember, every I mention above is starting over again. If you advance during your 4 years in Active Duty (AD), you managed to get more certificate or work on your degree (bachelor minimum), you do well in all 3 fields. Find a field you like to be in. I'm working up to go into Cyber Security.
