Yep!! I guess my ol' memory ain't so bad after all !
The Army, however, has no legal authority to force soldiers to pay their debts. Also, the Army cannot divert any part of a soldier's pay even though payment of the debt was decreed by a civil court. Only civil authorities can enforce payment of private debts. The FDCPA applies to the Army as well, so a debt collector may contact the Army about a soldier's debt only if he/she has a written and signed consent from the soldier, or a court order permitting contact. However, a mere creditor, as opposed to a debt collector, does not fall under the scope of the FDCPA and therefore he/she may contact the Army on their own behalf to collect an outstanding debt.
