The United States Navy Recruiting Command just announced they are offering an enlistment bonus of $25,000 to anyone who enlists in the U.S. Navy Active Duty.
The Navy is the only U.S. military branch currently offering this high of an enlistment bonus for any new enlisted, and depending on an enlistee’s rating the enlistment bonus could be as high as $50,000.
Those who take advantage of the Navy’s new bonus program will be required to ship to Basic Training at Great Lakes, IL, between April-June, 2022.

In addition, Prior Service Members, either Navy or other services, re-enlisting onto Active Duty in pay grade E-4 or below, and who meet specific bonus eligibility and have not received a bonus in their first enlistment, also qualify for the $25,000 bonus.
