Ohio Treasurer Suggests Compensation for Veterans

Ohio Treasurer Richard Cordray is proposing a ballot issue that would lead to vertan bonuses similar to those received by those who fought in wars during the early and mid 20th Century.

The bonuses would provide up to $1,000 for military personnel who served in the Persian Gulf War or the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
