Cash bonus? Sure. But moving up the leadership ladder for recruiting a friend is frightening.
My older brother enlisted back in like 2008 as a PFC by doing just that. This isn't new just brought back.
Gonna say the same. Buddy and I went I. Under the buddy system. He had edu, got rank. I had his referral, got rank. This was back in 2001
Its only from E1-E3.
Those are guaranteed promotions anyway in less than 2-3 years in most units.
The free promotions stop after E4 and are sort of merit based after that.
This is honestly not that big of a deal.
But another sign of recruitment lows for the army.
Our military is gay.
They're doing it to collapse the USA. What part of China paying Joe don't people get?
Sounds like Amway.
What is it with leftists and giraffe neck?
So they can fit more dicks inside.
So much neckativity...
Participation trophies of the military fucking disgusting.
Aaaaaand the Army suicide rates just spiked.
Was literally a thing when I joined in 06.
So, is the army now a multi-level marketing scheme?
But not up to the point where you can actually make decisions that matter. Well, I say that but the reality is I've seen some genuinely retarded NCO's in my time in the military. Like actually retarded, not metaphorically retarded.
I'll only sign up if my starting rank is of General.
The "Buddy Fucker" stripe has been around for at least 30 years.
That soldier actually rose two ranks for referring a friend that was also his own periscope.
Make Sgt by lying to friends how great this is.
So the Army is now an MLM (multi-level marketing) company? Fucking pathetic.
Referrals aren't new. I remember this from 80's high-school when I joined the Army.
Terminalcwo got a screenshot of a soldier being told the company was required to keep a referral card on their person at all times, either hard or digital, and that it was an inspectable item.
Cannon fodders gon cannon fodder
They are all working towards getting a gold star.
I entered the army as an E-2 30 years ago because I got a friend to sign up. This is nothing new.
If I make sergeant and marry a 400 lb woman will they automatically promote me to staff sergeant?
To add a bit of context: I enlisted in '07 and this program was around then, too. Inflated signing bonuses also.
Everything gets easier after I do it the hard way o.0
Enlists whole family- WW3
