NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – One of the responsibilities of the Register of Deeds office is to record approximately 31,000 Veterans’ DD 214 (discharge papers) in New Hanover County. The Register of Deeds and Veteran Services are initiating a new program to encourage Veterans to record their DD 214. Our plan is to issue them a Veterans “Thank You for Your Service” Photo ID card that makes them eligible to receive discounts or incentives from participating New Hanover County businesses when they present their card. We are asking New Hanover County businesses to consider participating in this program as a means of showing continued support and appreciation for our local veterans. We certainly understand that some business already offer military discounts and we thank you very much for showing your appreciation.
Participating businesses will be listed on our website http://registerofdeeds.nhcgov.com/ (viewed by thousands of people weekly). All Veterans who come into our office will be given a current listing (or directed to the website) of those businesses who have agreed to participate in the program. Upon issuance, the Veteran will be told that they must show the New Hanover County Photo ID card in order to receive the discount or incentive.
Please consider adding your business to our list by completing the enclosed form and returning it to us by mail or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Tammy Beasley at (910)798-7736. We will send you a sign to display (if you choose to) showing our Veterans and your customers that you participate in our program that supports Veterans.
You may advertise your business in many ways; why not let us help you advertise with our website and distribution lists? You will be showing our residents, but most importantly our Veterans that you appreciate their service to our Country. A discount or incentive for the Veteran is all we are asking from you. We will advertise your business FREE of CHARGE.
“Thank You for Your Service” is scheduled to begin on November 11, 2015.
Thank you, in advance, for your support of our Veterans.
