County Clerk Maureen O’Connell recently launched a program to record Veterans Discharge Papers conveniently, quickly and close to Veterans’ homes. Members of the East Rockaway VFW Post 3350 recently took advantage of this new service. The Nassau 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 of these vital records should the need arise. The County Clerk’s Office will continue to work with Veterans’ groups throughout the County to bring this important benefit to as many Veterans as possible.
Veterans may also participate in another program established by the County Clerk, the Veterans Recognition Program. When a Veteran’s DD-214 is recorded, they are given a card enabling them to receive discounts on goods and services at various businesses in our communities.
