For new members the bonuses have increased $2,000 to $10,000 for six years and those who re-enlist will see an increase to $15,000.

Local guard recruiters say they hope the new bonuses will help sway people considering the guard but leery of service in Iraq.

Campbell says local recruitment has been ok, but the "one weekend a month, two weeks a year" appeal is a tough sell with more units heading for Iraq.
