WAR and brass:

The U.S. Army is now offering an additional $20,000 bonus to new recruits willing to ship out quickly.

The “QS” bonus, for “Quick Shipper,” goes to new and prior service recruits who join, select a job and ship out for training within 30 days.

The bonus is in addition to other enticements already in place.

“The $20,000 means a lot of seed money for new soldiers answering the Army’s call to duty,” Tom Foley, spokesman for the Columbus, Ohio, Recruiting Battalion, told station WLWT in Cincinnati.
