Just wanted to pass along some information, Oregon offers disabled veterans a number of benefits among them are, free passes to all Oregon state parks, free hunting and fishing licenses, license plates and exemptions for property taxes. You can contact your county veterans service officer for more information or visit this web site: State of Oregon: Veteran Benefits

You earned it, why not make use of it!!!!!

Default Great news

Thanks for posting this Great information for me as i am a disabled OEF IV & OEF VII veteran and currently reside in Southern California. Unfortunely Vets here have to be at 100% disablilty to get any of them kind of benefits here. I'm planning on moving when i save enough money to do so. Oregon/washington Border is gonna be this mans final destination especailly with all of the benefits that you mentioned. Thanks again

.... Indeed, "Mother Oregon" is treating her disabled veterans mighty fine.

.... For example, after recently returning back to Nebraska for another short sojourning (planning to return to eastern Oregon soon as weather permits), just for kicks I'd gone to DMV to see how much my license plates would be on my 8 year old Dodge van. $250.oo+ for one year counting the transfer & all. My designated veteran plates for the state of Oregon were only $117.oo... for life!

.... Another fine benefit is the Oregon State Parks pass, granting up to 10 days camping per month. That has helped a lot over the years, allowing for a little more affordable recreation, given my living on a small, fixed monthly income.

.... There are more benefits as well. Thanks, Terry, for pointing this out. Many eligible vets still have no idea about all these. Thanks to the state of Oregon for honoring her service-connected, disabled veterans. We very much appreciate the gestures. It is an honor in itself to have served our nation.

Oregon does follow through with many things that really help Vets. There is a big V.A. Facility and Hospital in Roseburg, Oregon. Our place is about 18 miles away. Should really be a positive when we put our place on the market next year.

FYI....There is a V.A. Rep in the Douglas County Courthouse to assist Vets obtaining information and services.

I am glad that Oregon is taking care of our veterans. I am sure more is to be done, in general, but good that this a good place for our vets. Thank you to the veterans especially this time of year.
