Military veterans who served during the Persian Gulf War era have until Tuesday to claim Ohio bonuses of up to $1,500.
Eligible next of kin of those who were killed in action or died of disease as a result of in-theater service also can apply for the Ohio Veterans Bonus.
As of earlier this month, roughly $60 million had been paid to nearly 72,000 veterans and family members covering all three war eras.
