Say you had been in the military, and were convicted of a crime you didn’t commit, imprisoned unjustly, and discharged with a criminal record. This would obviously keep you from getting a decent job or military benefits. The military later overturns the convictions but doesn’t reverse them, so you’re stuck with the record and discharge.
Now say the military decides to finally pay you back for your trouble. You know, missed pay, benefits, that sort of thing. You’d be expecting, what, a few thousand dollars at the least, right? It wouldn’t be too big of a stretch to think you might get a million or two.
How about 725 bucks? Nice job, U.S. Military.
