The Air Force plans to offer $20,000 signing bonuses, paid annually over four years, to entice mid-career acquisition officers to hang with the service despite the stress they are under from repeated six-month deployments. Here, Capt. Aine Akeley meets local contractors who attended the first Qalat Vendor's Fair Nov. 26, 2006, in Qalat, Afghanistan. Forty contractors from the Zabul Province attended the event. Akeley is the services and commodities chief for the Regional Contracting Center.
