$250,000 apparently.
A quick google unearthed this:


2. The military spends a fortune on recruitment advertising but relatively little on retention of trained soldiers. Substantially more money needs to be shifted from recruitment to retention. The reasoning: it can cost as much as $250,000 to properly train a soldier for a skilled assignment -- only to have them leave after one term of service.

Hope you find this helpful m8 Quite an interesting site.

I don't know what the Americans soldiers cost but the most expensive soldiers on earth are the British Royal Marine Commando SBS special forces. Becuase they have to first go through Royal Marine Commando trainning(Green Beret) and then they have to gain years of experiance there through further trainning and then they are allowed to go into SBS and then are trainned once again. The second most expensive troops are the British SAS.



Figures are hard to come by, but currently Special Forces spending may be as high as £2m per soldier invested in the SAS and SBS, according to the Scotsman newspaper. The Single Intelligence Vote (SIV), which is the budget provision for all three security and intelligence agencies, is over £1bn - we know that in 1997/8 it totalled £701 million - though this includes all the domestic services, such as MI5, as well.

£2 million pounds per SAS/SBS soldier which is $3,749,467.24 USD ($3.75 million) each.
