VAN WERT -- Military veterans can now obtain a veteran's ID card through the Van Wert County Recorder's Office and Van Wert County Veterans Services Office. The first cards were distributed Monday morning at the Van Wert County Courthouse to vets who go through a short interview and have their records checked in the Recorder's Office.

The ID card also works locally as a discount card for veterans, with 32 local businesses offering discounts on goods from food to laundry to chiropractic services. Veterans wanting a card should contact the Veterans Service Office to set up a time for an interview.
