VETERANS PREFERENCE
VETERANS PREFERENCE


An honorably discharged veteran who has received a preference credit in an entrance examination for public employment, may not upon return from a second tour of wartime military service receive a preference credit in a promotional examination.  An honorably discharged veteran in public employment who has not been given a preference credit in either an entrance examination or a promotional examination may, upon return from a second tour of wartime military duty, receive preference credit upon a competitive promotional examination.  A person who entered military service subsequent to December 31, 1946, when hostilities of World War II were declared at an end and prior to the declaration of peace by Germany and Japan is a war veteran entitled to veterans' preference for competitive examinations for public employment.
