Pentagon Forcing California Veterans
to Pay Back
California – 33rd District Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia)
today released the following statement on the California soldiers forced to pay
“I am outraged that our fighting men
and women have been mistreated this way. Our military veterans sacrifice so
much to protect our freedom and when the Pentagon promises them bonuses to
reenlist, I expect those promises to be kept.
It is shameful that the
federal government would require our soldiers to pay back bonuses that they
earned and deserved when they enlisted to fight for our country, especially
when our government wastes money on unnecessary programs every day.
urge Congress to immediately right this wrong, and to stop betraying the trust
of our brave men and women who left their families to serve our country
