Assemblyman OUTRAGED

Pentagon Forcing California Veterans

to Pay Back $$$$



Sacramento, California – 33rd District Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) today released the following statement on the California soldiers forced to pay back bonuses: 


“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.

I 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 overseas.
