19. Yep. It happened to my brother in law.
He has a non-combat injury. The army released him and now they subtract some pro-rated amount for the signing bonus he got from his monthly checks. I think he was getting about $120/mo. He's had to fight to get more disability or whatever they call it. Now he's at 50% so he's getting more monthly but he's still paying back the bonus. It's total bullshit. I can't even imagine these guys who have had really terrible injuries having to worry about paying those fuckers back. Some thanks, eh?
