In October 2015 after years of appeals, Khatchig Khatchadourian received a letter from the National Guard Bureau, the Pentagon agency that oversees state Guard organizations, ruling that he was eligible for his entire $20,000 bonus. A year later he is still waiting for half of the money. (Mel Melcon / Los Angeles Times)
