Not only is this old news...Nov 2007...but it is also bogus. It was a one-time mistake and quickly fixed.

This story actually broke in November 2007. Not exactly breaking news. Obviously someone who doesn't like the military, or the Bush administration is trying to rehash something that happened and was quickly fixed.

11/26/2007 - WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- If you are wounded in combat and discharged as a result, you will not have to pay back your enlistment bonus, Defense Department officials said here Nov. 26.

"Bonuses are not recouped simply for one's inability to complete an enlistment or re-enlistment agreement through no fault of the military member," a policy statement said.

Pentagon officials re-stated their policy after a wounded soldier in Pennsylvania received a bill from the Army. Jordan Fox was a private first class in Baqouba, Iraq, when he was wounded in the explosion of an improvised explosive device in May. Mr. Fox was partially blinded in his right eye and suffered a back injury when the bomb went off.

Shame on for not doing a little research.
