Over Obama's 8 years in the Oval Office, he has demonstrated time and time again just how much he really cares for our troops. Many soldiers who return to America and desperately need our help are treated like second class citizens from Obama's VA, often times actually dying while they wait to be treated. Well, just to drive his disrespect for our nation's military he has made sure to leave them one last little 'gift' to show is gratitude for their service.

When the American men and women pledge that oath of service to our country they are not taking this decision lightly. Many American's know all to well that by signing your name on that dotted line you may very well have to give your life in order to carry that contract to completion.

Your life is literally on the line.

So it would seem fitting that the government be expected complete their part of the contract by providing soldiers with things like a salary, bonuses, and benefits, all as written into the contract.

Now California's National Guard Soldiers are having to learn the very brutal truth that Obama has made it possible for the government to completely go back on their word do whatever they want with out troops.

Almost an entire decade ago, the pentagon ended up paying out thousands of dollars in bonuses to California National Guard soldiers in order to get them to reenlist. This was the time of the Afghanistan and Iraqi war when the government was hard pressed to get more people to sign up and join the military.

Well now it would seem that due to "financial oversight at the time," or really just Obama having no idea how to manage a budget, it would seem that the government is in a pinch now and needs a few extra bones. So who do they turn to to get their grubby mitts on that extra cash.

The soldiers that have already done their service for our country. Now that Obama doesn't need them anymore, he's throwing them out and kicking them to the curb, but not before robbing them blind.

The government isn't just asking for the money back either. They're making sure they get every last dime they can by garnishing wages, tax liens, and interest payments. Naturally, many of these soldiers have gone public with their outrage at Obama reaching straight into their accounts and putting such a heavy financial burden on their families.

"I signed a contract that I literally risked my life to fulfill," said Army Sgt. 1st Class Robert Richmond when speaking with the Times. "We want somebody in the government, anybody, to say this is wrong and we’ll stop going after this money."

As of now the government has managed to steal back $22 million from these Soldiers. The California Guard is working to try to help their soldiers by aiding them in the appeal process with the Army Board for Correction of Military Records and the National Guard Bureau.

This will probably prove to be a futile effort, however.

"At the end of the day, the soldiers ended up paying the largest price," said Maj. Gen. Matthew Beevers, deputy commander of the California Guard in an interview. "We’d be more than happy to absolve these people of their debts. We just can’t do it. We’d be breaking the law."

This type of behavior is truly despicable coming from anyone but when it comes from the top it's not only disgusting but embarrassing. These soldiers have signed their life away to serve our country. The least we can do to show our gratitude is give them what they were promised when they signed up, but we can all see just how much gratitude Obama has for our troops.

Please share this on Facebook and show the awful injustice that Obama is committing against our soldiers.
