#2 They don't. The bonuses are a nice way to keep an MOS filled that has a shortage.

You pay it back later in dealing with the goddamn VA.

And may the gods help you if you need to go to a VA hospital. AOC spouted that it was a wonderful example of socialist medicine. Well, it is an example of it. Just how fucking bad and incompetent it can be.

#9 Someone ran the numbers. Bonuses are good short term means to avoid long term retirement payouts figured on base salaries.
