The Army is offering a nice chunk of change for new warrant officers as it works to fill out its air defense artillery branch.
- According to an Army press release, the $60,000 bonus the service is offering is up for grabs for soldiers, as well as sailors and airmen in other services.
- Every year, the Army needs 68 new ADA warrant officers, the release says. Only two of the three specialities for ADA warrant officers are offering the bonus — air and missile defense technician, and air and missile defense systems technician.
- Currently, the ADA warrant branch is only six percent women, which the Army is looking to improve, Army Chief Warrant Officer 4 Jonathon Boone, the ADA Proponent warrant officer, said in the press release.
