ESHOO STATEMENT ON DEFENSE DEPARTMENT DECISION TO HALT COLLECTION OF ENLISTMENT BONUSES

October 26th, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Representative Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.) released the following statement after Defense Secretary Ashton Cater announced the Defense Department was halting efforts to recoup enlistment bonuses paid to California National Guard members.

“I’m relieved Secretary Carter has taken steps to halt the senseless collection of enlistment bonuses paid to California National Guard members over a decade ago,” said Eshoo. “These brave men and women reenlisted during the height of the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and were improperly awarded bonuses due to mismanagement and in some cases fraud on the part of California National Guard officials, not through any fault of their own.”

Eshoo concluded: “I’m working with my colleagues in Congress to find a permanent solution to correct this injustice and ensure our service members get the relief and respect they deserve.”
