Putnam County Clerk Encourages Veterans to Take Advantage of Return the F.A.V.O.R Discount Program

CARMEL, N.Y. – As the county prepares to celebrate Veterans Day, Putnam County Clerk Michael Bartolotti reminds Putnam residents, who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, to participate in the Return the F.A.V.O.R. Discount Program to get year-round savings as a small token of appreciation.

“Putnam County has always been a very patriotic community and I am thrilled to be able to continue this program which allows my office and the local merchants a way to say thank you to our Veterans every day,” said County Clerk Bartolotti. “The merchants are all eager to ‘Return the Favor’ and give thanks for all the sacrifices you have made to guarantee our freedom and safety.”

The Return the F.A.V.O.R. (Find & Assist Vets of Record) Discount Program entitles Veterans to hundreds of discounts on merchandise and services throughout Putnam County.

“You cannot put a dollar amount on what we, as a society, owe our Veterans,” said Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “What we can do is take every opportunity we have to show our gratitude. I support the County Clerk’s Return the Favor program and encourage all of the Veterans to use it. It can save you money on meals, home heating and other services as well as on rounds of golf at Putnam County Golf Course.”

Veterans who file their DD214s at the Putnam County Clerk’s Office are issued a Putnam County Veteran ID card that enables them to take advantage of discounts offered by local merchants.

“Filing the DD214 with the County Clerk’s Office is an important thing for Veterans to do,” said Bartolotti. “By my office keeping it on file you do not have to worry about losing it. It is an essential document required for many Veterans services. The Return the F.A.V.O.R program is a bonus.”

Putnam County’s Return the F.A.V.O.R. program is a wonderful way to help and honor our Veterans at the same time,” said Art Hanley, chairman of the Putnam County Joint Veterans Council. “Participating Veterans are assured that they will always be able to find a copy of their DD214 and the ID card they are issued is good for discounts from merchants throughout the county who wish to say thank you for your service.”

A list of the participating merchants and the discount offered is available on the County Clerk’s website, putnamcountyny.com/county-clerk, along with the program’s rules and conditions.

“The program’s success is dependent not only on the participation of our Veterans, but also our local merchants,” said Bartolotti.  “As such we strongly suggest every Putnam County business to enroll as a participating merchant.”

Merchants who are interested in participating in the Return the F.A.V.O.R program can find applications to join there as well.
