California National Guard Bonus Update: By VFW 8-17-17

California National Guard Bonus Update:

A 2010 audit revealed that from 2004-2010, bonuses and student loan repayments were paid to numerous California Army National Guard soldiers as a result of errors and, in some cases, criminal behavior by members of the California National Guard. As a result, the Department of Defense (DOD) initiated the recoupment of the erroneous payments; however, it did so in a manner which left many former soldiers in financial distress. As a result, then Secretary of Defense Ash Carter ordered a full suspension of recoupment efforts. Over the past year, 17,485 cases have been investigated 17,092 of which have been resolved favorably, either by DOD waiving the remainder of the existing debt or by not initiating debt recoupment.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
