Veterans can get Ohio ID card Nov. 12 at UC Clermont

BATAVIA, Ohio (Nov. 3, 2016) –  Clermont County veterans can obtain an Ohio Veterans ID Card at a Veterans Breakfast being held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12, at UC Clermont College. The breakfast will be held in the student lounge (Jones 99).

Thanks to recently passed legislation, Ohio Veterans ID Cards can be issued to veterans who have been honorably discharged from active duty. Veterans must bring in their DD-214 papers. The ID card will allow veterans to take advantage of the many discounts offered to veterans by merchants throughout the area.

Beginning Nov. 14, veterans will be able to get their ID card at the Clermont County Recorder’s Office, 101 E. Main St., Batavia. It is open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. No appointment is necessary, and the ID card is free. Again, veterans must bring in their DD-214 papers, so that their discharge can be recorded.
