Military exemption

In response to the Jan. 21 reader opinion regarding exempting military pensions from

being subject to state taxes, I suggest you reprint the guest column written

by Suzi Pohl during the Bush administration where she so eloquently describes

the trials, tribulations and sacrifices a military member and his or her

family endure throughout their career.

Since Minnesota does not have a major federal

military installation in-state, most benefits from those installations are

not available to our retirees, or minimal at best. It would be a small

gesture of good faith to recognize their selfless contributions by exempting

their pension pay from the state income tax system.
