Bonuses keep military active PDF Print
Thursday, 11 October 2007 21:45
The Pentagon has paid more than 100 million in bonuses to veteran Green Berets and Navy SEALS in attempts to keep them in the military and out of the corporate world. 
The retention effort is overseen by the U.S. Special Operations Command. More than 1,200 of the military’s most specialized soldiers near or eligible for retirement have opted for payments of up to $150,000 in return for staying in the service. The incentives not only keep experienced veterans in the military but also demonstrate that there’s a financial reason to have an extended career. Recently, the stress of repeated deployments overseas and financial opportunities outside the military have heightened the urgency of the military’s retention efforts. The Pentagon expects to spend another $43.5 million on bonuses in fiscal year 2008, which started on October 1.
