Picture identification cards available to Valley veterans

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - There's an easier way for Mahoning County veterans to prove that they have served in the U.S. military.

 Valley veterans can obtain a picture identification card that verifies their status as a veteran and displays information about their service.

The card will be used for benefits that are offered by area businesses.


To receive a card, a veteran must submit military discharge information with the County Recorder's Office with a valid form of identification.
 
More information about the cards is available at the Recorder's Office at (330) 740-2345.
