CINCINNATI (AP) — Some Ohio military veterans eligible for state-funded bonuses of up to $1,500 only have days left to apply.
Ohio veterans who served during the Persian Gulf war era must have their applications in no later than Tuesday to receive the bonuses funded by a $200 million bond issue approved by Ohio voters in 2009.
The bonuses are open to veterans who served anywhere in the world during the Persian Gulf war era as well as the eras of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But application times for the lraq and Afghanistan periods continue past Tuesday.
The Ohio Department of Veterans Services director urges veterans to check if they think they may be eligible. Director Tim Gorrell says veterans owe it to themselves and their families to find out if they qualify.
