I actually heard of a similar situation. Someone I knew ETS'd last year. On his last installment of his initial enlistment bonus, they paid him $22,000 instead of $2,200. He did the same thing and put the money into a savings account waiting for them to call him out. He ETS'd 6 months later and they still hadn't said anything. He later found out that since he's out of the Army and has signed his discharged papers which had stated from the Army that he owed them nothing, they couldn't call him out. He spent half the money as down payment on a new car for his wife this past summer and donated the rest to charity (forget which one). Taxes have come and past and they haven't mentioned anything to him. Lucky b@$terd! lol
Russia... is... awesome!
