Merchant List Updates
Thank you to our merchants for their participation in our Veteran’s Discount Identification Program! Together we are proud to honor our Montgomery County veterans.
When we record a DD214 (military discharge papers), we provide a veteran with a Discount Identification Card, but this program would not be a success without the support of participating merchants who provide the discounts to honor our veterans. To date, we have recorded over 8,000 DD214s for our veterans. Check out the list of over 500 merchants in our region that provide a discount upon showing your Montgomery County Veteran ID Card.
The list is updated monthly. Click here to view the list of participating merchants.

Below are web-sites that provide information on Veterans benefits and how to file/ask for them. Accordingly, there are many sites that explain how to obtain books, military/medical records, information and how to appeal a denied claim with the VA. Please pass this information on to every Veteran you know. Nearly 100% of this information is free and available for all veterans, the only catch is: you have to ask for it, because they won’t tell you about a specific benefit unless you ask for it. You need to know what questions to ask so the right doors open for you and then be ready to have an advocate who is willing to work with and for you, stay in the process, and press for your rights and your best interests.
