CINCINNATI – As the U.S. Army continues to keep thousands of troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, Army recruiters have a new perk to offer new recruits.
The Army is now offering a $20,000 “QS” ï¿½?? or ï¿½??Quick Shipperï¿½?? – bonus to new and prior service recruits joining, selecting any job and shipping out for training within 30 days.
"The Q.S. letters means “quick shipper,” said Columbus Recruiting Battalion spokesperson Tom Foley in a news release. “And $20,000 means, well, it means a lot of seed money for new soldiers answering the Army’s call to duty. The Army is growing in size and we simply need more recruits for training, now.”
“I don’t think I would, for that reason, to go over to Iraq,” said senior Jared Snow. “I don’t think it would be worth it to me, but it would appeal to me.” – Cool Dude!
