Legislation Proposed To Give Tax Money Back To Combat-Injured Veterans




Senator John Boozman introduced legislation that would affect hundreds of Arkansas veterans like Brandon Davis.

Davis was a member of the 39th Infantry Brigade of the Arkansas National Guard from 1997 to 2005 and was deployed to Iraq for over a year.
