I would have fallen in on the BEAR IOT meet remaining TIS reqs to attend the SFQC...but my Reenlistment NCO at JBLM didn't know it existed, so I just plain re-enlisted (no bonus) outside my window to meet TIS reqs to attend the Q.

BEAR (Bonus Extension and Retraining) was a reenlistment option, not an enlistment option. Allowed folks who were serving in a career field without a bonus to do a combination extension/reenlistment into a field that did have a bonus. There weren't a whole lot of fields with bonuses back in the mid-90s. Ah, the Good Old Days of the 90s drawdown...
Life’s barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.
