From the Veteran Service Officer – 12/8/2017

WASHINGTON — Today the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that the application process for the national Veterans Identification Card (VIC) is now available for Veterans — yet another action honoring their service. This has been mandated through legislation since 2015 to honor Veterans, and today’s rollout of the ID card fulfills that overdue promise.

Only those Veterans with honorable service will be able to apply for the ID card, which will provide proof of military service, and may be accepted by retailers in lieu of the standard DD-214 form to obtain promotional discounts and other services where offered to Veterans.

We at Post 8049 are fortunate to have our Service Officer also serving as the Town of Norton Director of Veterans Services.  Estelle Flett can be reached at 508.285.0274 or  Check your benefit status, file for a claim, or review your record with her to make sure you are getting all you have earned through your service to your country.
