War Bonus Applications

I just read an interesting article in Family Chronicle about War Bonus Applications. Many states gave them to returning vets from a variety of wars. According to the author, Donna Murray, state archives and libraries usually hold this information. She says the following states kept these records:

Connecticut
Delaware
Hawaii
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kentucky
Louisianna
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
Missouri
Montana
New Hampshire
New Mexico
New York
North Dakota
Ohio
Oregon
Pennsylvania
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Vermont
Washington
West Virginia

I've attached anothr article she wrote about the same subject.

Hope this helps someone
