Attention Veterans:

Nassau County Hosting “Welcome Back Warriors” Fair

Record your Discharge Papers with the County Clerk


(Mineola, NY)  On Tuesday, May 22, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano is hosting the “Welcome Back Warriors” All-Veterans Jobs and Support Services Fair at Nassau Community College’s Physical Education Complex.  Winthrop University Hospital is the proud sponsor of this event.  The fair will have numerous companies with job opportunities on hand along with other services for returning Veterans including specialists with expertise in job hunting skills and the G.I. Bill.

Representatives from Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell’s office will also be available to record Veteran Discharge Papers (DD-214) free of charge.  Once recorded with the Clerk’s Office, Veterans and their families may obtain a certified copy (legally equivalent to the original) of these vital records should the need arise.

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 card enabling them to receive discounts on goods and services at participating businesses throughout the county.

Any Veteran interested in participating in the fair should contact the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency at (516) 572-6565.
