2.  TO ENSURE OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS NOW AND IN THE FUTURE, OUR 
NAVY MUST ATTRACT THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECRUITS AND PRIOR SERVICE 
VETERANS.  A VIGOROUS RECRUITING PLAN REQUIRES FLEXIBLE TOOLS TO 
ENSURE WE ARE RECRUITING THE CORRECT NUMBER OF SAILORS WITH THE RIGHT 
SKILLS TO OPTIMIZE OUR WAR-FIGHTING CAPABILITY. 
3.  THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS IDENTIFY EACH BONUS PROGRAM.  GUIDANCE IN 
THIS NAVADMIN SUPERSEDES REF B IN ANY AREA WHERE THE TWO MAY CONFLICT.

PAYABLE IN A LUMP SUM.  ALL TIER ONE BONUSES ARE ALSO PAYABLE IN A 
LUMP SUM REGARDLESS OF LENGTH OF ENLISTMENT.  SAILORS ARE HIGHLY

        (2) BONUS EFFECTIVE DATE IS DETERMINED BY THE DATE A SAILOR 
CONTRACTS IN THE ARMED FORCES (DELAYED ENTRY PROGRAM (DEP) DATE), AND

    C.  PRIOR SERVICE AFFILIATION/ENLISTMENT BONUS

QUALIFY FOR A THREE-YEAR BONUS.

MILITARY SERVICE FROM THEIR PAY ENTRY BASE DATE (PEBD) PRIOR TO THEIR 
CURRENT AFFILIATION/ENLISTMENT DATE.
