Serving your country should never be about the financial gain. I'm personally considering enlisting in the Reserves because I can not afford the pay cut of full time enlistment. By can't afford I mean I would not be able to make my mortage and care for my family. Additionally $20,000 is not very much money. In terms of motivating me personally with a large sum of money to do something I don't want to do, you would need to give me enough to buy a nice piece of property. 20g hardly buys a nice truck!

isnt the us army already paying civilians more than that, I know some of the re enlistment bonus's are around 15,000 and if deployed at the time you get it tax free, and the real kicker is you dont even have to have any experience, hell they dont even give the experienced soldiers anything!

Nah, nobody is going to pay me more than $20,000 to sing. They might pay me $20,000 to NOT sing, tho.

Not as just enlisted. Maybe as an Officer(which I could do because I have a degree).

it depends on other stuff like the time period how much you'd get over the time if it offers a course that you like its not all about sign-on money!

I would join the navy if they would let me, but they don't want blind bats driving their retirement boats.

i agree with beth. money is nice, but i'd rather be alive than have $20,000.

LOL I hope you meant signing, not singing.

No way. How am I going to spend that money if I'm dead?

heck yes

if you are serving your country then it shouldn't matter how much signing bonus there is.
