A program launched by Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell brings the convenient and quick on-site recording of Veterans Discharge Papers close to Veterans’ homes. The members of the Carle Place American Legion Post 1718 recently enjoyed this service right at their Post meeting where their Discharge Papers were recorded on the spot. 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 is continuing 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.
