North Carolina military retirees to see state tax break Fayetteville Observer
Retroactive to Jan. 1, military retirees who settle in North Carolina will no longer be subject to state taxes on their pensions.
The North Carolina General Assembly approved eliminating the state’s tax on military pension income in the fiscal budget that was signed into law by Gov. Roy Cooper in November.
Cumberland County’s delegation of lawmakers sponsored and cosponsored bills to champion the effort.
They are Republicans, Reps. John Szoka and Diane Wheatley, and Democrats, Reps. Marvin Lucas and Billy Richardson, and Sens. Ben Clark and Kirk deViere.
Clark, a retired Air Force officer, filed a Senate bill in January that supported the initiative, which was backed by Army veteran deViere, who was a cosponsor.
Szoka, a retired Army officer, and Wheatley filed the House version of the bill in February that passed a third reading in the house in June.

January 6th — Today in Guard History National Guard
Morristown, NJ – In the 18th century it was common for armies to ‘hole up’ for the winter and few campaigns or battles took place. General George Washington broke this mold, with his darling strikes first at Trenton on December 26th, 1776, and again at Princeton on January 3rd. After the Battle of Princeton his army was in need of rest and reorganization. So he moved it into the Watchung Mountains of northern New Jersey for the winter. Here his men built log huts to keep warm and because of the army’s recent successes its ranks grew steady by spring as new recruits joined the cause. Washington selected this area for several reasons, the most important of which was its close proximity to New York City, the main base of the British Army. From here he was able to keep an eye on the enemy while being protected from surprise attack by the high ground he occupied. The local population was very supportive so food was obtained rather easily. And the area had iron works used for weapons repair and other purposes. Washington was so impressed by the benefits offered his army here that he again quartered his troops at Morristown during the bitter winter of 1779-1780.
