I'm refering tomy postabout the NFL abandoning injured players in the light of Jordan Fox (23) and the pentagon asking for $3 K back of his $10K siging bonus because he didn't serve the final three months of his tour.

He didn't serve, because he is no longer fit for duty, as he has been blinded in one eye and has back damage that prevents him from soldiering.

These injuries were, as you might expect, incurred when the truck he was riding in was hit by a roadside bomb.

PA Dem Jason Altmire has introduced a bill stating that in the event of injury, soldier are guaranteed their full bonuses...

W.T.F? We need a law for that?

Havenmage, you have folks in the military--- what do you/they make of this?

Another example of beaurocratic stupidity. Some pencil pusher attached to the pentagon by an umbilical cord was tasked with recovering money and did so, without considering the human cost, the person behind the serial number. This sort of thing happens all the time. This one just got reported because of the current political climate...
