PC Veterans Service ID Cards

Preble County Veteran Services is now offering honorably discharged veterans the opportunity to have a picture identification card. You may obtain your ID card at Veterans Services at no cost to you. You must bring a copy of your DD214 verifying character of discharge. For additional information you may contact Veterans Services at 937-456-6111.

‘We Care’ Program

In an effort to acknowledge the sacrifices of our local veterans and to promote spending within our own community, Preble County Veteran Services maintains a program entitled “We Care.” Veteran Services will supply local honorably discharged veterans with an official “picture identification card” which would be presented to local businesses when making their purchases. The veteran would then receive a discount from the total cost of the purchase. For more info, contact Veteran Services at 937-456-6111 or at 1322 N. Barron St., Eaton.

Editor’s Note: Organizations with meeting notices or events included in Veterans News are encouraged to send updated information to Eddie Mowen at cmowen@aimmediamidwest.com.
