How Not to Support the Troops

Can you believe that the military is actually asking wounded troops to give back part of their signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments?
Fox was seriously injured when a roadside bomb blew up his vehicle. He was knocked unconscious. His back was injured and lost all vision in his right eye.

A few months later Fox was sent home. His injuries prohibited him from fulfilling three months of his commitment. A few days ago, he received a letter from the military demanding nearly $3,000 of his signing bonus back.

Fox received a $10,000 signing bonus. Who comes up with these inane ideas? How much are they paid?

If that is true it is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What a slap in the face.
