thats goods news,

with what the the DOD spends on daily operations, this whole thing was just assinine, to go after vets and their families for 30 million total. I think that everybody who had already been strong armed should get their money back.

That's one of several things that will be looked into to resolve this. It's thought that they will order a stop to collection efforts, and a return of the bonuses as a "we screwed up" solution, and they'll overhaul the system going forward, but nothing concrete has been said yet.

A compromise has been reached. It stops short of ordering the Pentagon to forgive all debts related to enlistment bonuses and student loan benefits, but it puts the onus on the Pentagon to prove that the soldier knew, or reasonably should have known they were ineligible. Since the Pentagon would have to contact every one of them, and attempt to prove that, the most likely route forward will be forgiving most of the debts. This includes the Pentagon contacting credit and collection agencies and correcting any adverse affect. They have until July to review all the debts and determine which need to be repaid.
