i leave for basic july 7th
signed 5 years mp
in the aaaaarrrrrrmmy!!
5 years reserve contract? do you get SR-GI bill for a 5 year contract?
uhhh not reserve
active duy military police
why a 5 year active contract? do you get anything special for that extra year? standard is 4 years. i wouldn't do 5 years, especially as MP, unless they tack on another additional 15k enlistment bonus
whats done is done
good attitude and knowledge of the situation.
the 8 gs help too
which was a lot more than i was expecting anyway
welcome to the military family
MP contracts in all of the branches branches are usually 5 years long because the MP school and whatnot is extremely long, I think it takes up almost an entire year, so the Army would really only be getting 3 good years out of you as opposed to almost 4 years for most other MOS's, so most MP contracts have an extra year tacked on.
I'm sure the dude with the panda in his avatar can tell you more, can't remember his name lol, but I think he's an MP.
I've been an MP (Army) for over two years.
MP school is not long, only two months.
5 year was minimum when I enlisted, I have no idea why.
No $ bonus for MP.
Welcome to the corps.
I'm sure the dude with the panda in his avatar can tell you more.
5 years as an Army MP for a measly 8k bonus? You realize that's more like 5.5k right? And do you know how they're paying it out, ie. lump sum or broken up? I got screwed on my bonus, 6 years for 3k, broken in 30/20/20/30 payments throughout my enlistment. But I'm not an MP.
Congratulations though, hope you like convoys (escorting TCNs) and guarding gates, because you'll be doing plenty of that here in Iraq!
ya that's what i thought. why would MP school be long? you learn SOP and sidearm training. why would it be 5 years? anyone know for sure? i'll have a serious debate with myself for doing another year for 8k extra. that's not too much but it's not too little either.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! -- and THANK YOU for signing up!
I don't see an enlistment bonus for MOS 95B.
Unless you signed up for the OCS enlistment option? In which case you would get $8000 in one lump sum after you complete OCS and are comissioned.
critical shortage accession bonus
$8000 in one fat wad
MPs are 31B
i was never in this for the money. i had my heart set on either MP or civilian affairs but CA wasnt available and i guess 5 years is min for MP so i took it. i wasnt even expecting a bonus so im happy with what i got.
We used to be 95b.
hey where u stationed at btw
Camp Walker South Korea
i hate MPs , but at least you had the balls to enlist, congrats bro and welcome to the Army.
