Cash For Pennsylvania Persian Gulf Veterans

06.25.14 | Sarah Harnisch

With a little over one year until the program ends, the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs reminds Pennsylvania veterans that it offers a special one-time payment to those who served on active duty in the Persian Gulf Theater of Operations from Aug. 2, 1990 – Aug. 31, 1991. More than 10,500 Persian Gulf veterans have applied for the one-time cash bonus program since the Department began accepting applications in 2008. Prisoners of War or families of those who died from illness or injury could be eligible for additional funds.
