The Oregon Congressional delegation Tuesday asked the Inspector General of the National Guard Bureau to investigate the Guard's refusal to honor bonus contracts signed by members of the Oregon National Guard. Six members of the Guard have contacted U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon and others in Washington D.C. seeking help after the guard failed to honor the second half of their bonuses. Walden was in Bend last Saturday to address the issue that was first brought to his attention by PDC. Chelsea Wells.  "A contract is a contract. A deal's a deal. I assured her that we're going to take care of that contact. And I thanked her for her courage to not only serve her country but also to stand up and let us play a role in trying to help solve this problem. It’s not always an easy thing to do; in an organization based on chain of command." In the letter from the delegation sent to Inspector General H. Cronin Byrd, Walden says that these soldiers should not be punished because of a potential clerical error by the Guard. They asked for a swift investigation into the matter.
