As Veteran’s Day approaches, it is once again time to recognize and honor our Veterans. As a tribute to our Veterans, the Person County Register of Deeds is launching a “THANK OUR VETERANS” Photo ID card project. One of the many services that is provided by this office is the recording, safe keeping, and certification of Military Discharges, known as Form DD-214. The Register of Deeds Office, in collaboration with the local American Legion and the Person County Veteran’s Service Office, is encouraging all Veterans to record their DD-214, since it will assist them with benefits they may be entitled to for having served us and our great nation!
As an incentive, we are going to issue a Photo ID card to all Veterans who bring in their DD-214 to be recorded as well as Veterans who already have theirs on record. This is where you come in. We are asking local businesses to partner in this endeavor by offering Veterans, who present this ID Card, a small token/gift, a discount at your business, whether a percent off or a free drink with their meal, etc., anything that will let our Veterans know they are appreciated!
WE WANT YOUR BUSINESS TO PARTICIPATE! Here’s why it’s a great idea!
You are able to advertise your business in many ways: why not let us help you advertise with our website? All participating businesses will be listed on our website at www.personrod.net and on our County website at www.personcounty.net. This program is free to our Veterans and to our business partners. We will also, upon helping with this project, send you a sign to display at your business showing our Veterans and your customers that you are participating in our program.
PLEASE JOIN THIS EFFORT! It’s a great cause! We hope you will consider adding your business to our list:

PERSON COUNTY BUSINESS LEADERS
The Person County Register of Deeds is offering a "THANK YOU VETERANS" Photo ID card that will entitle them to a discount at participating businesses. Would you like the opportunity to show your appreciation to our Veterans by participating? Enrollment would be for one year with annual automatic renewals. We ask participating businesses to give us a 30 day written notice if they plan to withdraw.
A listing of all participating businesses will be on both the Person County Register of Deeds website and the Person County website.
Discounts may be a percentage of the sale or a specific dollar amount (can be with restrictions), a free drink with purchase, gift or gift card to the Veteran (whatever you decide for your business).
