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.
