Great SEALs of the United States…are slated to get bonuses of up to $160,000 for re-enlisting, according to the Navy.

These aren’t for rookies, but for the cream of the crop: SEALs who have been in uniform for at least 18 years. Contrary to public perception, SEALs and those who support them tend to be older and more experienced than most sailors. These bonuses are aimed at keeping senior enlisted and chief warrant officers on board.
