Air Force Dropping Re-Enlistment Bonuses in 17 Fields

Air Force cryptologic language analysts who specialize in Korean or Hebrew and who are eligible to re-enlist may want to submit their paperwork now.

The same goes for airmen in more than a dozen Air Force career fields about to lose retention bonuses that can be as much as $90,000.

The Air Force on Tuesday announced it was eliminating selective re-enlistment bonuses for 17 career fields — including Hebrew and Korean cryptologic language analysts — and reducing retention bonuses for 19 more in fiscal year 2018.
