17. I'm no expert

it doesn't look like a lot..

from: http://www.arcent.army.mil/about-us/fact-sheets/deployment-entitlements-fact-sheet

Hostile Fire Pay/ Imminent Danger Pay (HFP/IDP): HFP/IDP is payable to Service Members (SM) subjected to hostile fire or imminent danger while on official duty in an imminent danger area designated in DoD Financial Management Regulation (DFMR) Vol. 7A, Chapter 10. SMs are paid for only the actual days served in an IDP area. IDP is prorated at $7.50 per day for a maximum amount payable not to exceed $225 a month. SMs exposed to hostile fire receive HFP in the full amount of $225. As of June 2014, only Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen and Egypt qualify for IDP in the US CENTCOM AO.

There are also other allowances that can be earned:

Hardship Duty Pay-Location (HDP-L): HDP is additional compensation paid to SMs temporary/ deployed/ attached/ or assigned for duty over 30 days duration in designated locations. Rates payable vary by location from $50 to $150 monthly. SMs receiving HFP/IDP may receive a maximum of $100 for HDP.
