The US Army and Marine Corps paid nearly $640 million in recruitment bonuses during Fiscal Year 2008 — as much as $40,000 per recruit. All told, the enlistment incentives coupled with the promise of thousands more for education, increased the costs of Army and Marine bonuses by 25 percent over last year’s totals, The Associated Press has learned.
