Military spending to retain troops skyrockets

"The struggle to entice Army soldiers and Marines to stay in the
military, after four years of war in Iraq, has ballooned into a $1
billion campaign, with bonuses soaring nearly sixfold since 2003." link

Yet another reason why this war has hurt our national defenses, not
improved them. An illegal, unpopular war hurts the Armed
Forces credibility, therefore, damaging recruitment.
