US Army’s ‘Unclaimed Funds’ Funded by Armies ‘Unpaid’
A US Army fund that funds bls armaments “Unpaid” and “Unclaimed” funds has been shut down after receiving a “request for help” from the US Army, which has not responded to a request for comment.
The “Unfunded” funds were set up in 2016 to help US Army soldiers “find their way back home” after their deployments overseas, but were unable to provide them with enough money to pay for basic living expenses and “unpaid” rent, the New York Times reported.
The Fund was set up to “help US Army and National Guard soldiers and their families, but the Army has refused to allow the money to be used to pay rent, utilities, food, and other basic needs, The Times reported, citing a spokesperson for the Army’s Office of the Inspector General.”
The Army did not respond to The Washington Post’s request for an interview.”
We are currently in the process of getting a hold of the Department of Defense to find out why this has happened and to ensure that our requests for assistance will be honored.”
The Army did not respond to The Washington Post’s request for an interview.
The unclaimed funds were supposed to be released into the fund after the US government had approved their use, but have been delayed due to the war in Afghanistan, The Washington Times reported on Friday.
“Unfunded and unpaid military expenses have continued to be a problem for the United States, which is experiencing unprecedented levels of poverty and underfunded military services,” the fund’s spokesperson, Maj. Gen. Brian Tannen, said in a statement.
“I am working with the Department to address these issues and ensure the Fund can continue to support the Army as it recovers from the war.”
According to The Times, the unclaimed fund is expected to be operational by the end of September, with a total of $20 million raised for the “unfunded and unpaid” fund.
The fund was created after the United Nations agreed to set up an international fund to help refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere.
The US has refused all requests from the UN to provide money to support its own troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, which are fighting against the Islamic State group and other insurgent groups.
In August, the Army said it would end all funds for the fund, which was set to open to all soldiers at the end-of-year and would no longer be available after that.
“This is a great example of how the US has demonstrated its commitment to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said at the time.
“The Army has a proud tradition of serving our country with the full understanding that our sacrifice is not for the benefit of the US taxpayer.”
