California National Guardsment to pay back re-enlistment bonuses

over a decade after they re-enlisted. A DECADE. Some of these bonuses were $15000.

This makes me sick...

    yeah. I understand that the Pentagon is trying to be accountable for funds that were promised/given perhaps incorrectly, but the soldiers who signed up are not at fault for that. Hopefully the Pentagon lawyers and bean counters walk this one back.

    This is messed up, these guys signed up in good faith.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I agree on all counts. If there was subterfuge on the soldiers' parts, I can understand trying to get the money back. That doesn't seem to be the case here.

    Can't imagine how i would feel about that. Talk about a claw back.

    Wow, that is whacked.

    Tell Halliburton to pay back their no-bid contracts if you want to recoup some $.
