    Re-enlistment bonuses going away

    Some re-enlistment bonuses going away

    Selective re-enlistment bonuses will dry up next month for Marines in 59 military occupational specialties, according to an April 13 Marine administrative message.

    A majority of those career fields come from the aircraft maintenance and avionics communities, 61xx through 64xx. Others losing bonus potential this year include communications (06xx), field artillery (08xx) and signals intelligence/ground electronic warfare (26xx).

    This year’s annual retention goals have been met or exceeded in these MOSs, according to MARADMIN 233/11. The Corps intends to suspend bonuses for them in mid-May.

    The Corps’ 2011 SRB budget was cut by more than half, dropping to $150 million from $327.6 million in fiscal 2010. Current re-enlistment bonus rates were announced last summer, and range from $3,750 for infantry assaultman to $48,250 for a counterintelligence specialist.

    Bonus closures are categorized based on a Marine’s length of service. Zone A applies to Marines with 17 months to six years of active Marine Corps service, of which at least 17 months was continuous service other than training. Zone B includes Marines with six to 10 years of active service, and Zone C includes Marines with 10 to 14 years of active service.

    The Reserve is not affected by these closures.

    Hey Leprechaun, You never seem to bring up the facts that for those who are multi millionaires have had increases to what they make that has doubled or tripled and they get huge tax breaks. Thereby owning most of the real property in the country and the middle class again subsidising their life styles so they can get even bigger tax breaks. 50% or all capital gains are taken by less that 1% of them and they rest for those who have enough income to be able to buy stocks unlike the vast majority that live paycheck to paycheck. And a lot of people who say things like in your post also say they should be allowed to keep everything they make. The strugglinh middle class should be allowed to keep more since they have less. It would affect a middle class family more than someone who has to find the time to go buy a new jet or yacht. But then you probably don't mind having your taxes increases so the wealthy can have an even better life.

    Exactly. Deleted as it has no place, or even relevance, to the article posted.
