Volume XVII Issue VII THE POST June 24th, 2017
Month of July Focus
In the coming months, I will try to give you useful information as presented by the Cook County Government’s Department of Veteran Affairs. Most of our members probably already are aware of this information so therefore I am supplying it as a refresher to existing post members and directing it to new Orland Memorial Post 111 arrivals.
Cook County Veterans Discount Card Program
The Cook County Military Discount Program is a public and private sector partnership to honor those who serve and have served. It is jointly administered by the Office of the Cook County Recorder of Deeds and the County Department of Veterans Affairs.
Their goal is to create a network of businesses and merchants who offer money-savings discounts and incentives to veterans and active-duty military, as a way of showing their gratitude. Those who wish to take advantage of this program can visit CCRD’s Veterans Service Office at 118 N. Clark St. Room 120, Downtown Chicago and upon proof of service, receive a Discount ID card.
(next month the Illinois State Veterans ID Program)
