RECORD YOUR DISCHARGE PAPERS WITH THE COUNTY CLERK
(Mineola, NY) On Monday, February 24,
2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Echo Park in West Hempstead,
the Northport VA will be hosting their Veterans Outreach Program
with the Nassau County Clerk's Office to bring important services
to Veterans right here in the community.
The County Clerk’s Office records and secures Veterans Discharge
Papers (DD-214) free of charge so that Veterans and their families
may obtain a certified copy (legally equivalent to the original)
of these vital records should the need arise. As part of an
initiative launched by Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell,
Veterans are invited to come and record their Discharge Papers conveniently,
quickly and close to home.
In conjunction with this service, County
Clerk O’Connell has
established the Veterans Recognition Program to show appreciation
to our Veterans for their sacrifices to preserve and protect our
freedom. When a Veteran’s DD-214 is recorded they are
given a Photo ID Card enabling them to receive discounts on goods
and services at participating businesses throughout the county.
Veterans interested in taking advantage of
this County Clerk’s
service are encouraged to bring their Discharge Papers on Monday,
February 24, 2014 to Echo Park located at 399 Nassau Blvd
in West Hempstead, NY.
For additional information, please contact County Clerk O’Connell’s
office at 516-571-2660.
