Never one to begrudge a good wage for military personnel, it is, however, worth noting that these bonuses average nearly $57,000 per sailor. It ain’t like hitting the lottery, but it ain’t peanuts, either. Especially because the bonuses are tax-free, given that the sailors re-upped while in a combat zone battling the Taliban and al Qaeda fleets.
