Ongoing Nonsense: Veterans; Donation Suggestion: IAVA

A sick news item so that I can share my pissed-off feeling with everyone else:

Military Demands Wounded Soldiers Pay Back Portion of Signing Bonus

From the story:

---

The U.S. Military is demanding that thousands of wounded service personnel give back signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments.

To get people to sign up, the military gives enlistment bonuses up to $30,000 in some cases.

Now men and women who have lost arms, legs, eyesight, hearing and can no longer serve are being ordered to pay some of that money back.

If anybody is interested in helping veterans this holiday season, I suggest Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
