10 U.S. Code § 514 - Bounties prohibited; substitutes prohibited

No bounty may be paid to induce any person to enlist in an armed force. A clothing allowance or enlistment bonus authorized by law is not a bounty for the purposes of this subsection.
No person liable for active duty in an armed force under this subtitle may furnish a substitute for that active duty. No person may be enlisted or appointed in an armed force as a substitute for another person.
(Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 19.)
