Say NO to US gov. billing war wounded to pay back enlistment bonuses
We, the undersigned are outraged that the US Defence Finance and Accounting Service is billing wounded military personel to pay back enlistments bonuses. These men and women HAVE PAID, with their bodies, minds and souls, that is enough!This is further PROOF that the BUSH administration does not care about our troops. STOP BILLING WOUNDED PERSONEL TO REPAY ENLISTMENT BONUSES NOW! PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
The US government owes these military women and men a debt that can never be repaid. To demand they pay back the government because they were too wounded to serve their full tour of duty is adding insult to injury!According to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, each month from October 2005 through October of 2006, at least 600 members of the military and as many as 1,100 have owed bonus debts totaling anywhere from $2.5 million dollars each month to $4 million. The money comes from skyrocketing enlistment and re-enlistment bonuses being offered to lure recruits and keep experienced troops in uniform. Just this past year, the Army doubled its top bonus from $20,000 to $40,000.They earned every penny of that money by their service.STOP BILLING WOUNDED PERSONEL TO REPAY ENLISTMENT BONUSES NOW.
