purple heart benefits in Illinois?

I’m just interested if anyone knows of any benefits for purple heart recipients in Illinois? I am already aware of the healthcare, I am more interested in college scholarships and such. I know there is a purple heart scholarship but it applies to the children of recipients, not the recipient themselves. Also, anyone know of any benefits of getting the purple heart license plates? I had them in Texas and I didn’t have to pay parking meters, how cool was that?!?! Anyhow, I’m not sure how Illinois works, Thanks! Devin

Start with the Illinois state VA (see link)

McHenry County College and others in IL offer the Illinois Veteran’s Grant (see link)

IL has a tax exemption for real property & mobile homes

Some job assistance (although the IL tracking rates for hired vets is being tweaked due to IL not using SSNs for hires)

State Fair admission is free for vets on Veteran’s Day

There are also hunting, fishing, & camping privileges.

Palin served two terms on the Wasilla, Alaska, city council from 1992 to 1996, then won two terms as mayor of Wasilla from 1996 to 2002. After an unsuccessful campaign for lieutenant governor of Alaska in 2002, she chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 to 2004 while also serving as Ethics Supervisor of the commission.. Doesn’t sound like 10 ys of major to me.. Palin began her political career in 1992, when she ran for Wasilla city council, supporting a controversial new sales tax and advocating “a safer, more progressive Wasilla.”[20] She won and served two terms on the council from 1992 to 1996. In 1996, Palin challenged and defeated incumbent John Stein for the non-partisan office of mayor, criticizing wasteful spending and high taxes. In the campaign, she highlighted her anti-abortion stance, her church work, and her NRA membership.
