Pentagon chief suspends National Guard bonus repayments

from The Associated Press via WHNS-TV

Carter's decision comes in the wake of angry reaction from congressional Republicans and Democrats who demanded he relieve the burden on Guard members following news reports that soldiers were being asked to repay debts that in some cases totaled more than $25,000. more
