Saturday, U.S. Representative Greg Walden of Oregon held a news conference in Bend to explain what he, and the rest of the Oregon delegation is doing to help the Oregon National Guardsmen and women who have had their contracts broken for no apparent reason. Chelsea Wells signed on with the Guard in 2007, when she was a junior in high school. Te contact states she would get $10,000 to sign on as an intelligence analyst and another $10,000 after serving three years. She received a letter reneging that contract. That's when she contacted Greg Walden, who has taken the charge of find out what happened. "Now it looks more like a bait and switch at worst, incompetence at best. The Guard affirmed to me their decision to withhold the second half of her bonus and most stunning at all; they said they want to recoup the first half of their bonus. We’re not going to let that happen. I couldn't be more clear, this is not how a nation should treat its men and women in uniform. We don't pull a fast one on our heroes." Walden says high level sources in the Pentagon say the 16 Guard what have surfaced with this problem and not alone; that there are many more in other states. Walden says not only will they work to correct this problem, but get procedures in place so that it won't happen again.
