These incentives are available to qualified recruits who enlist in one of more than 45 job specialties, including fire support specialist (13F), signal support systems specialist (25U), petroleum supply specialist (92F), pharmacy specialist (68Q) and health care specialist (68W).

Three-year enlistments

Payment of bonuses for which recruits qualify will begin once they have completed basic combat and advanced individual training. To learn more about Army opportunities, visit your local Army recruiter. Click here for assistance with locating the nearest Army recruiter.
