McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of California National Guard veterans who are being forced to repay enlistment bonuses
In response to a shortage of combat-ready troops in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the California National Guard offered soldiers bonuses of $15,000 or more to reenlist and go to war. Now, the National Guard Bureau, an agency of the Department of Defense, is demanding repayment of the bonuses, imposing interest payments, and threatening wage garnishments and tax liens. Over 10,000 members of the California National Guard received bonuses that they could be forced to repay, despite the fact that the bonuses were paid upwards of ten years ago. If you are a California National Guard veteran who accepted a combat bonus and received a collection notice on the bonus from the Department of Treasury, please contact us.
