The York County Recorder of Deeds office is offering free photo IDs to all veterans who file or have filed their military DD214 discharge papers there.
In a recent email, Recorder Randi Reisinger said her office started the new program on Dec. 3.
She said DD214 forms have always been recorded in the Recorder’s office but are not public record.
“We are also asking York County businesses to consider giving our veterans a discount to show their appreciation of the veteran’s’ service to our country as well as a ‘Thank you’ for serving,” Reisinger said. “This list of merchants is growing daily.”
The Recorder of Deeds Office is located on the first floor of the York County Administrative Center at 28 E. Market St.
Your DD214 is an important piece of paper, necessary to verify military service, for application for veterans’ benefits and membership in veterans’s organizations.
Now, if you have misplaced your discharge papers, you can request a copy for free through the National Archives.
