State Representatives Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and Lou Terhar (R-Cincinnati) recently introduced House Bill 173, which will allow veterans to obtain a Veteran Identification Card from county recorders’ offices when recording their important military discharge documents (DD214) for safekeeping. The card will display a photograph of the veteran, military service dates, and other pertinent information regarding the veteran’s service. The card will also contain their specific document number, so the discharge record can be rapidly located by the recorder’s office when needed.
