Veterans do not get half off of their county taxes. The rates for those exemptions are the same as posted in the article, that is what the alternative school tax exemption is based on. It ranges from 10% up to 25% for a combat veteran, with special cases for those with a disability resulting from their service. Property tax veteran exemptions are quite common.

Thank you Larry for sharing the story of your family's experiences in WWII. The lessons learned gives us another perspective to view today's issues, and gives us an opportunity to pause and assess how we would like to be judged by the generations who follow us. I hope we live up to their examples.
