Muskegon County Clerk’s Office now issues Veteran ID Cards.
Veterans may get a card by visiting the county clerk’s office at 990 Terrace Street, on the first floor, during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and bringing:
· Military Discharge Papers (DD214)
· Photo identification (such as Michigan driver’s license, or Michigan ID card)
The Muskegon County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a motion to allow County Clerk Waters to begin issuing Veterans ID at their meeting on Tuesday, October 28th.
Many businesses offer veterans a discount as a way to express gratitude for their service to our country. However, the veteran must be able to show proof. Veterans often do not carry proof of their service.
Clerk staff will take the veteran’s photograph and obtain their electronic signature. The veterans photo ID card is only available to Muskegon County residents.
Veterans who do not have their discharge papers may get them from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/
