Iowa, World War II Bonus Case Files, 1947-1954

Ancestry.com  recently released its MyFamily.com Redirect Text Link"Iowa, World War II Bonus Case Files, 1947-1954."

Ancestry.com's description of these records says (in part):

"In May 1947, the Iowa Legislature approved bonus payments of up to $500 for men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces between 16 September 1940 and 2 September 1945. To qualify, applicants had to be legal residents of Iowa for at least the six months prior to their service."

We've included a copy of the application for John Florian Cawiezell as illustrative.
