NORRISTOWN – Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg has announced three upcoming mobile Veterans’ Discount ID card events to be held throughout Montgomery County this summer and fall.
“I am excited to get back out on the road with our Veterans’ Discount ID Program,” said Sorg. “After the past year kept everyone home and this program grounded, we are eager to get back out in the community and bring this program directly to veterans.”
The Recorder of Deeds office has started getting back out into the community, participating in the Retirees Appreciation event at the Biddle Air Guard Base and the Veteran’s Resource event at the Horsham VFW Post #9788.
The Veterans’ Discount ID Program
Veterans are encouraged to record their military discharge paperwork (DD214 or NGB22) with the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office. The documents are recorded in perpetuity on the office’s secure database and are the only documents not available for public search.
“A DD214 is the most important document a veteran holds,” said Sorg. “Recording it with my office gives the veteran and their family members instant access should they need it.”
Veterans who record their military discharge paperwork receive a Veterans’ Discount ID card, good for discounts at more than 500 business throughout Montgomery County.
“I am thankful for all the businesses in Montgomery County who have committed to showing their gratitude towards our veterans through discounts on goods and services,” said Sorg. For businesses interested in learning more about this program, please visit our website, www.montcopa.org/rod.
Veterans should bring their military discharge papers (DD214) and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, with them to the event. The whole process takes only a few minutes.
