Payments Part Of Expanded Benefits Approved By State

BOSTON -- Massachusetts veterans who've served their country abroad are being recognized with special $10,000 bonuses.

The "Welcome Home" payments are part of expanded benefits approved by the state in 2005.

The tax-free payments are awarded to service members called to active duty since Sept. 11, 2001, and who served in Iraq, Afghanistan or any other nation in the world for 180 days or more.
To date, 17,000 applications have been approved.

Ten service members were to receive checks Monday at the Statehouse from Treasurer Timothy Cahill. They are Carl Bernard of Brockton, Daniel J. Connor of Needham, John Eden of Mendon, Mikaela Fahey of Plymouth, Anthony F. Hinson of Chelsea, Michael Kennedy of Boston, Thomas A. Luciano of Melrose, Brendan Murphy of Boston, Jose Navarro of Malden and David F. Roy of Attleboro.

When I returned home the first time, I didn't expect anything. Then I found out about the $100 from NH so I got it. Once I found out MA does $1000 it just pissed me off. I think that NH should just not give anything rather than this. It's very half-assed.
