State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) encourages Ohio’s Persian Gulf era veterans to apply for the Ohio Veterans Bonus Program.

Veterans eligible to receive the Persian Gulf War bonus of the Ohio Veterans Bonus can have served anywhere in the world for at least 90 days active duty, not for training, between August 2, 1990 and March 3, 1991. Eligible veterans must have been a resident of Ohio when they entered the military , and must be a resident at the time they apply. The Bonus is also open to the next of kin of those who were killed in action or died of disease as a result of in-theater service. The Ohio Veterans Bonus is not subject to federal or state taxes, and can be used for any purpose.

Being home to the sixth-largest veteran population in the country, Ohio’s opportunities to give back are abundant. A major part of this effort is informing veterans of the potential benefits they have accrued. The deadline specifically for Ohio veterans who served in the Persian Gulf conflict to apply for the Ohio Veterans Bonus is December 31st of this year.

“All of our military personnel have given personal sacrifices in leaving their loved ones to protect our freedoms,” Rep Anielski said. “ It is my intention to make sure that all those who have served are aware of the benefits and services available to them.”
