Thank-A-Vet

In November 2012, the Lancaster County Recorder of Deeds, Bonnie Bowman, launched the "Thank A Vet" Discount Program. We salute the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces, as well as those who wear the uniform and defend our country today. This program will provide a photo ID FREE OF CHARGE to Lancaster County veterans who have the DD-214 honorable discharge papers or other honorable discharge papers filed on record in our office.

The "Thank A Vet" Discount Program is a way for our community to express its gratitude and recognize the service and sacrifices made by our veterans. Participating merchants agree to honor the card by providing special discounts on purchases or services when presented with the "Thank A Vet" photo identification card. Participating merchants and sponsors will be identified by a poster or decal in the window and also listed here on our web site. The site will be updated monthly, and upon request, printed copies will also be available.

 

Discharged or retired military personnel should record their military separation papers or DD-214 in the Recorder of Deeds office. By recording your honorable discharge you will be able to obtain up to four certified copies and have the security of knowing that your document is a permanent record. Discharge papers are held in the strictest confidence and can only be accessed by the service member, his or her legal guardian, or individuals with signed and notarized authorization from the service member. Both the recording and certification of your DD-214 is FREE.

If you have already recorded your DD-214, and after the program has launched, our office can verify that your discharge is recorded and we will then proceed to issue your veteran's ID card. See below for Contact Information.
