    Dear Veteran,
    I am honored to have the opportunity to thank you for your service. Without people like you, this Country would not be what it is today.
    As the Nassau County Clerk, I am pleased to offer services that can be of great benefit to veterans, which include our recording of Certificates of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD-214) and the issuance of Veterans Peddler’s Licenses.
    Veterans are also eligible for numerous other programs here in Nassau County, including a reduction in property taxes. When applying, veterans can receive an exemption based on the type of service they rendered to their country during wartime. A DD-214 must be submitted to determine eligibility for this program.
    I encourage you to contact the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency at the telephone numbers listed on the inside of this brochure to find out what benefits you may be entitled to and for assistance with completing required forms to receive your veterans’ benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.), New York State, and Nassau County.
    On a personal note, please accept my heartfelt appreciation for the sacrifices you made in the service of our country.
