As the Defense Department grapples with how to handle some 10,000 California National Guardsmen who received improper bonus payments, a spokesman for the Maryland Guard said just three service members received improper bonuses and have already paid the money back.
The overpayments totaled $32,000 Col. Charles S. Kohler said Wednesday. Another guardsman was underpaid $600, the same audit found.
"There's nothing outstanding," Kohler said. "There's no soldiers in Maryland we're trying to recoup money from."
The cases were revealed in a 2011 audit begun after the problems in California began to emerge, Kohler said.
