Forcing people to repay enlistment bonuses 10 years after the fact. Our country should be ashamed of itself.

Government at its finest, gives warriors bonuses to fight then after combat takes the money back with interest. As usually the Soldier will suffer, while bureaucrats and politicians feel no pain. When Uncle Sam comes calling keep yours hands in your pockets, he will screw you.

Ironic that the people with the guns have no power...
The extinction of the species is worse than the extinction of the nation, which is worse than the extinction of the tribe, which is worse than the extinction of the family, which is worse than the extinction of the individual. The second he reverses that list of priorities, he becomes a coward, and would be summarily disposed of by any civilized society that values its own survival.

I got back out before they started the bonuses. Re activated for a year while in inactive guard status. If I were one of those affected...

Bureaucrats wait till the guns are out of a warrior's hand to take money back.

One of my favorite lines might have a flaw.

Finally made national spotlight. I imagine congress will pressure pentagon to relent to save face.
