The US military offers cash bonuses to new recruits

Prosecutors outline the financial case of the campaign against Lev Parnas as the criminal trial begins

The military branch says it is the largest bonus it has ever offered.

The Army is offering new recruits up to $50,000 in incentives to enlist for six years.

Highlights

  • How much the recruit receives depends on several factors.

  • In the past, recruits were limited to $40,000.

Bonuses are also given to those who can quickly complete combat training.

The Army says certain jobs come with higher bonuses because they either need to fill them quickly or the positions are difficult to fill.
