H.R. 3793 would amend title 37, United States Code, to require the Secretary of Defense to continue to pay to a member of the Armed Forces who is retired or separated from the Armed Forces due to a combat-related injury certain bonuses that the member was entitled to before the retirement or separation and would continue to be entitled to if the member was not retired or separated.

This is a much needed change to the current law. Department of Defense Instruction 1205.21 authorizes the non-recoupment of bonus monies paid to

Soldiers, but does not authorize the final payment of monies that the Soldier would be entitled to if they remained in the service. The current law is silent on the matter. All who care about Wounded Warriors should support this bill.
