I reclassed last year and just arrived at my next duty station. I started the process to reenlist under the BEAR message I extended under in March 2012. The part I am confused about is this. The retention NCO broke down my time in service by contract. My initial enlistment, my first reenlistment, a 3 month extension I signed in 2009, and then my BEAR extension I signed last year. He said that I have just started serving the 3 month month extension I signed in 2009, and because of that, If I reenlist for five years, I will only get 4 years of bonus, if I reenlist for six years, I will only get five years of bonus, etc. I did not receive a bonus for that 3 month extension in 2009. I have six years TIS now.
