Brandon Moseley interviews Dr. Stewart Tankersley about the attack on Alabama’s guardsmen and the potential consequences of this devestating blow by current government officials.
Doctor and retired Alabama National Guard Colonel Stewart Tankersley explained to 1819 News that this is more complicated than simply changing jobs in that if a soldier has received a benefit such as education assistance and they have not completed the required term of service for obtaining that benefit they could owe all of the money back to the Pentagon. ‘This is a big deal to those young people, they joined to get those benefits,’ Tankersley said. ‘They are petrified of losing those benefits.’
