9. Oh, he also seems to have gotten the Army's "quick-ship" bonus
Note he signed up before the Sept 30 2007 deadline for the bonus:


http://www.countermilitary.org/Articles/MilitaryRecruit...


Helping to catch their attention this year is news about a $20,000
"quick-ship" signing bonus that new recruits might receive if they
complete their processing and agree to depart for active duty prior
to Sept. 30 -- the deadline for the Army to reach its annual recruitment goal.


Considering the bonus is greater than an entire year's pay for the
average first-year soldier, it's no wonder. But that's not the only
monetary incentive at the booth.

Some of them were staying in the same hotel as Johnson and Dunn
Monday night on the eve of "enlistment day" processing the next
morning. Others had already joined up and were preparing to fly off
to basic training.

Among the latter was Track Palin, the 18-year-old son of Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin and honorary "First Son," a potential "quick-ship" bonus
winner himself, heading off to Fort Benning, Ga.
