Whoa! Government. Stop Defense Department! What you are doing is wrong. The Government, (Some idiot in the back office or some congressional committee, a collection of idiots, has suggested that military men and women who were promised a bonus if they re-upped for another tour in harm’s way, must give it back to Uncle Sam because they were not eligible.)
Come on Congress this is stupid. Give up a perk or pork for your district. Eliminate one flawed program, and there are many but fix this.
Not one military member should give back anything for the time served. If it was a mistake by the bureaucrats who run the wars, then the national debt should absorb the loss. It supposedly comes to a total of $20-million. Twenty-million. It’s nothing in the federal budget.
I can’t even believe this is an issue. And Washington, you’d better fix it before election day.
