Last August, Morris County Clerk, Ann Grossi, introduced a program known as "Operation Giveback" to honor the men and women of Morris County who served in the military and contributed so much to our country's freedom.
Over the past year, employees from the County Clerk's Office have contacted hundreds of businesses throughout Morris County to develop a booklet providing discounts on products and services exclusively for county veterans.
On Friday, April 29, representatives from the County Clerk's Office will be participating in an Open House at Post 2519 from 3 —7 p.m.. The county representatives will be issuing Morris County Veterans ID cards to all veterans in attendance and distributing copies of the "Operation Give Back" discount booklet.
In order to obtain a Morris County ID Card, you must provide one form of identification proving Morris County residency and a copy of your DD 214 discharge document. If you are a World War II veteran and were not issued a DD 214, they will accept a copy of the separation document you received.
In addition to the county personnel, there will be a representative from the Veterans Administration in attendance to answer any questions you have relating to veterans' benefits. A local attorney knowledgeable in veterans' legal issues is also planning to attend.
This event is open to all Morris County veterans who have received an honorable discharge. Attendees need not be a member of Post 2519 or any other veterans' organization. No appointment is necessary and refreshments will be served.
We hope you will join us on April 29th and feel free to invite other eligible veterans to attend. As you know, Post 2519 is handicap accessible and has ample parking. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at (973) 627-2293.
