Attention all Delaware County veterans

Any Delaware County veteran, it is now your time to obtain a free Veterans Photo Identification card at the Government Center in Media.  This will make it easier for you to access discounts offered to veterans by various businesses, restaurants and other services.
The new Veterans ID Program was set up by Delaware County Council, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Recorder of Deeds in a program also attended by several veterans.
The Veterans ID card will be issued at no charge to all honorably discharged veterans from 9a.m. to 3p.m. weekdays at the Recorder of Deeds office, Room 108, at the Government Center.

To receive a photo ID card, the veteran must present a DD-214 or equivalent military discharge issued under honorable conditions and a current photo ID card such as a driver’s license.
At the same time, the county is conducting outreach to businesses who offer veterans discounts in order to list them on the county website for Veterans Affairs. Businesses interested in participating in the veterans discount program can contact the County Veterans Affairs office at 610-891-4539. The discounts are at the discretion of the business and will be posted on the Veterans Affairs website. The site will be updated on a regular basis, so new businesses can be added at. Each business will also receive a certificate of participation to display at their location.

If veterans cannot locate their DD-214 or military discharge documents they can apply for copies through the Veterans Affairs office, on the ground floor of the Government Center.
For more information about the Veterans ID Program, or other veterans’ services, contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 610-891-4645 or visit the website at www.co.delaware.pa.us.
