The State of Ohio is urging veterans who served during the Persian Gulf War to apply for the Ohio Veterans Bonus before the Dec. 31 deadline.

Veterans who served in the Persian Gulf War from Aug. 2, 1990 to March 3, 1991 are eligible for a one-time state bonus of up to $1,000.

Veterans who served anywhere else during the war at that time are eligible for a bonus of up to $500. Family members of veterans killed in action during the Gulf War are eligible for bonuses of up to $6,500.

In 2009, voters approved the Ohio Veterans Bonus.
