Retired Army Col. Bryan Hilferty volunteers by delivering dictionaries to the third graders at Manchester Elementary school in Pinewood, SC. Hilferty and his fellow SC veterans are not exempted from state income tax. Some states, like North Carolina, have exempted veterans from state income tax to entice them to retire there, bringing their expertise and future paychecks and day to day spending with them. SC has not, and the bill is one identified by the DOD that will figure in to future BRAC rounds.
