"THANK A VET" Discount Program

This program is a win-win for our community; it honors our local veterans and drives commerce to area businesses.  We are proud that Western New York has stepped up to make this program the success it has become.  Together we are able to say THANK YOU to our veterans in a meaningful way.

The “Thank A Vet” card is a complimentary photo I.D. certified by the Erie County Clerk that a veteran has produced their original discharge paper and has been honorably discharged.  The card is available to any veteran who is an Erie County resident and honorably discharged from any branch of service of the United States Armed Forces.

Upon filing your ORIGINAL discharge papers with the Erie County Clerk, you will be issued a “Thank A Vet” discount card that can be used at our participating local businesses.  Your original document is returned to you immediately upon recording.  A scanned image is chronicled for safe-keeping and peace of mind.  Discharge papers include: DD-214, DD-256, NGB-22 etc.
