New Incentives to Join OK Guard

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma National Guardsmen would get a
life insurance policy and tax relief under a benefits package
unveiled by Governor Henry on Monday.

The package -- called "Operation Homefront" -- includes a $250,000 life insurance policy for every member of the Army and Air National Guard. It also calls for a 50 percent tax exemption on veterans' military pensions.

Henry says a Military Family Relief Fund would allow Oklahomans to donate all or part of their state income tax refund to soldiers' families.

Henry unveiled the package at a news conference where he was
flanked by more than a dozen Guardsmen.

Henry says the Guard is making an extraordinary commitment to the state. He says its only right to make an extraordinary commitment to the Guard.
