OKLAHOMA – Governor Mary Fallin recently signed a bill into law that will exempt hundreds of injured vets from paying property taxes.
The initial return to American soil can be traumatic for those who have fought for our freedom.
On top of adjusting to life and physical injuries, thousands of disabled vets are battling a financial war.
“We have 22 veterans a day that commit suicide and, you know, a lot of it is income related or PTSD related” said Rep. Dustin Roberts.
Roberts hopes his bill will ease money woes.
Come November 1st, disabled vets who make $20,000 or less can qualify for homestead exemption.
