A former Oregon National guard soldier, shot in Iraq, has a $3,000 bill from the military. Gary Pfleider is still not sure exactly what the bill is for. He said he originally thought the government was trying to make him pay for gear he left in Iraq after being shot. But now, he says the military is telling him it’s not about the missing equipment he left behind, but instead about being overpaid from his last few months in the military. Pfleider says a defense finance and accounting service spokesman told him he was overpaid from July, 2008 to September, 2008. Pfleider says he didn’t get any notices about being overpaid before the $3,000 bill arrived. The military says they can’t discuss the billing because of privacy issues. So we wanted to know, do you think this Iraq War veteran, who was disabled in the line of duty, should be forced to pay back this money?
