The Navy wants the Defense Department to reauthorize a program that pays sailors extra when their deployments exceed 220 days, which became commonplace in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The two-year program is set to expire Sept. 17, but the Navy is working to extend the program so sailors will continue to receive bonuses in their paychecks, according to Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, spokesman for the chief of naval personnel.
