Persian Gulf War veterans are reminded that an important deadline is falling just after the holiday. Applications for the Ohio Veterans Bonus for Persian Gulf era veterans must be submitted no later than Dec. 31.
Veterans eligible to receive the Persian Gulf War portion of the Ohio Veterans Bonus could have served anywhere in the world for at least 90 days active duty, not for training, between Aug. 2, 1990 and March 3, 1991. The amount of the bonus is higher for service in the Persian Gulf theatre. Eligible veterans must have been a resident of Ohio when they entered the military and must be a resident at the time they apply.
