MONROE COUNTY VETERANS DISCOUNT CARD
The Monroe County Veterans Discount Card Program is an initiative between Monroe County, the Veterans Outreach Center and local merchants to recognize and thank our County’s more than 60,000 veterans, reservists and individuals serving on active duty.
Under the Monroe County Veterans Discount Card Program, honorably discharged veterans will be issued an identification card by the County that identifies them as a veteran.
Participating County merchants have agreed to honor this card by providing these individuals with discounts on purchases or services, or some other special offer. Individuals in the reserves or currently on active duty will be able to present their military identification cards to participating merchants and will receive these same discounts.
Although this program could never fully acknowledge or thank these individuals for their service and sacrifices made to protect our country, in some small measure it is a way we can demonstrate our appreciation.
