Abstract:

The report shows the response of the Navys Nuclear-Trained Enlisted Force to a special continuation bonus, enacted by Congress in 1972 to forestall an expected shortage of supervisors. The Nuclear-Trained Petty Officer Continuation Bonus, payable to reenlistees with six to ten years completed service, accumulates to more than 12,000 over the reenlistment term. The direct effect of this unique reenlistment incentive is analyzed with data from the first four full quarters of bonus experience.
