Under the SALUTES Program, the Thank A Vet Discount Card is a complimentary picture I.D., certified by the Erie County Clerk, that a veteran has produced their original discharge papers and has been honorably discharged.
The Erie County Clerk’s Office “Thank A Vet” discount card carries significant benefits, approximately 1,400 Erie County businesses that have voluntarily signed up to give discounts on purchases and services when the card is presented. Eligible veterans will receive a complimentary photo I.D. card which identifies them as an honorably discharged veteran.
FOR VETERANS: Upon filing your ORIGINAL discharge papers with the Erie County Clerk, you will be issued a “Thank A Vet” discount card. Your original document is returned to you immediately upon recording.
Discharge papers are proof of your military service, and can be used to establish eligibility for a variety of benefits including property tax exemptions and civil service credits. Discharge papers include: DD-214, DD-256 and NGB-22.
Should a veteran ever need a certified copy or has misplaced/lost this critical document, a certified copy is readily available FREE OF CHARGE at the Erie County Clerk’s Office.
