The Army wonders why it missed it’s recruitment goals. One soldier wounded in Iraq lost an arm and part of a leg, but the Army wants $646 for nine days rent. Apparently the Army is sending bills for things like this to soldiers who are actually in combat:
Although efforts are being made to correct such problems, Rep. Todd R. Platts (R-Pa.) said that for some troops, “we’ve so mismanaged their pay that … we’ve sent debt notices while they’re still in combat, in harm’s way.” Hounding wounded troops is unfathomable, he said. “For even a single soldier, this is unacceptable,” he said.
I guess the Army hasn’t heard of the Soldiers’ and Sailors Civil Relief Act?
