The Ohio Veterans Bonus is available to veterans who served more than 90 days active duty, not for training, during the periods of the Persian Gulf War and the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. For the Persian Gulf, the period is from Aug. 2, 1990, through March 3, 1991; for Afghanistan, from Oct. 7, 2001, through a date to be determined by the President, and for Iraq, from March 19, 2003, through Dec. 31, 2011. Payment can be received for active duty service anywhere in the world during these periods, but is higher for veterans who served in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan or Iraq. Eligible veterans must have been an Ohio resident at the time of their entry into the service, and must be an Ohio resident currently.
