CONTEMPLATES THAT A YEAR OF SERVICE IN THE ENLISTMENT PERIOD WILL BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE NEXT INSTALLMENT IS PAID. THE REENLISTMENT BONUS AND THE VARIABLE REENLISTMENT BONUS ARE REENLISTMENT INDUCEMENTS AND. TO PAY A VARIABLE REENLISTMENT BONUS TO A MEMBER WHO HAD BEEN AWOL FOR A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF THE PAYMENT YEAR WOULD BE INCONSISTENT WITH THE BASIS FOR WHICH THE BONUS WAS AUTHORIZED. YOUR REQUEST FOR DECISION WAS ASSIGNED D. FOR A PERIOD OF 6 YEARS AND WAS PAID THE FIRST REENLISTMENT BONUS OF $1. THAT THEREFORE A REASONABLE DOUBT EXISTS WHETHER THIS MEMBER WILL COMPLETE HIS CURRENT TERM OF ENLISTMENT AND WHETHER AN OVERPAYMENT OF VARIABLE REENLISTMENT BONUS COULD BE RECOVERED FROM THE CURRENTLY ACCRUING PAY IF HE WERE TO RECEIVE A DISCHARGE PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF HIS ENLISTMENT.
