They must pay police really bad wages where you live.  Starting wage around here is between $3,500-$4,000 a month. 

I do not know how the army works, but the AF only gave half of the enlistment bonus up front, then the rest after a few years.  So If you opted for a 6 year tour with a $30,000 bonus.  you would get $15,000 on sign up minus tax of around 45%.  Then get the remaining $15,000 at the 4 year mark (minus tax of course). 

If you are joining the Service for the great pay, then you have extremely low standards, and might consider a career at wal-mart.  The pay is about comparable, but you would work less hours.

Seriosly Dbib, just cause the army gave you "special" treatment doesn't mean everybody else wants to go in the army.  The army doesn't offer everything.  Each branch has its share of specialties and jobs, thats why we have 5 branches.  Stop pushin' army.

Yea, but sometimes people just don't like the way the Army runs and they enjoy a more... "homestyle" life.

Bonus's most likely.  Also, he'll probably have to go 4-years active if he wants to become an MP, unless he's had prepolice training...
