The Navy is offering more than $100,000 in surface warfare bonuses as the service contemplates new ways to boost retention within the community.

Active duty officers could earn as much as $105,000 to become SWO department heads, while active duty lieutenant commander SWOs may earn up to $46,000 after signing on for another three years — the same amounts offered to officers last year, according to Navy data.
