Army's 'Debt Of Service' Leaves Vets Perplexed --Unbelievably, Soldiers Must Pay For Damaged Equipment 24 Jul 2007 Brian Rodriguez is a fighter, an honorably discharged soldier who'd been deployed in Iraq. Former Army Specialist Rodriguez started getting bills for $700 for lost or damaged government property this summer. Although he was discharged some four years ago, bills recently arrived demanding payment, but giving no details on what or why -- nor do they offer a way to dispute the charges... A 2006 government report found more than 1,000 soldiers being billed a total of $1.5 million

Editor's footnote...

(Reported on Feb 8, 2006) A former U.S. soldier injured in Iraq says he was forced to pay $700 for a blood-soaked Kevlar vest that was destroyed after medics removed it to treat shrapnel wounds to his right arm.
