they are no longer eligible for combat pay
this is understandable.
if the soldier didn't finish the years of the re-enlistment contract, they aren't eligible for the full terms of that contract.
if the soldier is not able to finish his/her job because they got shot on duty they, in my opinion, have fulfilled their contract. if they get out on a section 8 as cpl klinger on mash or on an article 15 as i did tried they haven't.
