Through the AARP Veterans, Military and their Families initiative and the Arkansas Veterans Team, the state office is serving as a sounding board and an advocate for those who have served the country. AARP Arkansas has protected veterans from fraud and plans to press state lawmakers for a caregiver tax credit when they reconvene in 2019.
AARP also invites veterans to post their stories under the headline “The Buddy I’ll Never Forget” at aarp.org/home-family/voices/veterans.
Nearly half of Arkansas’ 225,118 veterans (46 percent) are 65 or older, and 48,347 receive disability benefits.
