Iraq Veterans Running Out Of Time To Claim State Bonuses


UPDATED: Sunday July 13, 2014 7:59 AM

Veterans who served in Iraq during the war only have a few months left to claim Ohio bonuses of up to $1,500. And state officials are expanding efforts to reach potentially thousands of veterans who may miss out by not applying.

The Ohio Department of Veterans Services is releasing public service announcements about the bonuses this week. They also have been spreading the word through postcards, social media and veterans groups.
