More than $15 million of fraud and false promises are now falling on the shoulders of California National Guard veterans as the federal government demands re-enlistment bonuses back. According to official documents, peak activity in the Iraq war around 2006 prompted the Pentagon to entice soldiers to reenlist by offering big bonuses. However, after a more than $15 million scam unraveled in 2011 from California Guard administrators, it's now the veterans who were unaware of the fraud that are being asked to cough up the cash. Georgia Congressman Sanford Bishop also issued a statement to News Leader 9, saying he is against veterans being forced to pay back this debt.
