The Veteran's Bonus Division within State Archives Record Group 007, Records of the State Treasurer, was set up in 1947 to administer the statute of that year which provided for the payment of a bonus to Connecticut citizens serving in the armed forces during World War II (December 7, 1941 – December 31, 1946). Subsequent acts provided bonuses for those serving in the Korean War (June 27, 1950 – January 31, 1955), the Vietnam War (August 5, 1964 – May 7, 1975), and World War I (April 6, 1917 – November 11, 1918). The Division was disbanded at the end of June 1979. If the Service Member did not apply for a Veteran's Bonus, or did not serve during war time, we would not hold a record.
Under Connecticut state law, (Sec. 1-219) these records are available only to certain parties. Please see the Statement on Access to Veteran's Military Records.
