I also know the majority of those that do stay in complete some sort of training that will get them more $$ in the form of a RB. Now, General Dentists that never could get a RB will be able to get one and will end up making $12K more if they do.
Bottom line, the military isn't for everyone. Pay plans aren't meant to please everyone. The bonus system has a purpose. Retention bonsues are for retaining you.
"The information that has been released is for General Dentists with no additional training or with and AEGD-1."
AFDDS, this statement is a little unclear to me. Are you saying that this new info does NOT apply to those who have completed an AEGD-1?
Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.
