In the US, we have folks who are serious about supporting the troops, and getting them back pay they earned.
October 21, 2009, the $500 allowance will be paid for each month or any
portion of a month during which someone was held on active duty by Stop

Today, the Army has announced that it will begin
receiving applications online from soldiers, retirees, and veterans who
are eligible to receive the back payment. According to the Department of Defense, there are approximately 140,000 soldiers who may qualify for this payment.
