Think Progress has the scoop, and the story is absolutely insane.
Veterans who were discharged because they were wounded in Iraq and therefore unable to fulfill their "military commitment", have been ordered to return a portion of their enlistment bonuses?
"So Private Johnson...about that $4000 enlistment bonus we gave you a year ago...since you lost your left leg to an IED in Iraq and were unable to fulfill your obligation to the military, we are going to take $3000 of that bonus back from you. And by the way, we'll take the money back next month but it will take us 2 years to get your needs taken care of through the VA."
And this passes as "Support our Troops"?
What about some government oversight on all of the reconstruction and security contracts that have been overwrought with waste, fraud, and abuse?
This story makes me sick...
