I found this site that lists some of the states that offer bonuses. I believe most states do and I believe it is by home of record. Contact your state veteran affairs office.

Call your state veterans Affairs office to double check, in any state north or south. Or check your states website.

I know, I know, the south will rise again.... I do have family in the south if that helps...

I've had liquid from a Mason jar before. An old friend has family in Georgia and when he went down to visit he would bring some back. The best was the one with a peach floating in it! Kicked my BUTT!!
