Soldiers Still Waiting to be Paid

1/30/12 – Bureaucratic glitches and clerical errors are being blames for almost 80 Wisconsin National Guard soldiers not getting thousands of dollars they are owed for serving in Iraq. In some cases the money has been owed them for more than five years. The soldiers are members of the Wisconsin National Guard 1157th Transportation Company based in Oshkosh. When they got back from Iraq in 2007 they were due extra pay or leave days for serving multiple deployments. More than 90 of the 170 guardsmen and women were paid, but the rest didn’t get their money.
