SACRAMENTO – Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement after today’s Department of Defense announcement that it is suspending efforts to collect bonuses that were received years ago by California National Guard soldiers:

“Our military members should be treated with gratitude, and our nation’s actions should reflect that. I’m glad that the Department of Defense is taking this initial step to suspend efforts to take back bonuses from brave Americans who served our country during a time of war.

“I support efforts to see this through and applaud Congressman McCarthy and other federal representatives for their work to protect our soldiers," said Senator Fuller.
