Obama signs law restoring Guard members' leave
ST. PAUL -- The Pentagon will restore military personnel leave time that was stripped from nearly 50,000 soldiers in October.
President Barack Obama Friday signed into law a bill co-sponsored by all of Minnesota's congressional delegation that will return up to 27 days of paid leave to some of the state's National Guard members who have served in Kuwait helping to wind down the United States involvement in Iraq. In some cases, soldiers will get pay instead of days off.
