The Morris County Clerk reminds all U.S. military veterans residing in Morris County that they may obtain a free county photo I.D. card from the clerk’s office.

Morris County Clerk Joan Bramhall said the service is being offered free of charge to all honorably discharged Morris County veterans in appreciation of their service in protecting our citizens and our country.

The I.D. card designates an individual’s status as a veteran by providing the veteran’s name, address and the file number of his or her recorded DD 214 discharge papers.

According to Bramhall, many veterans have also registered their discharge papers with the county clerk’s office. By doing so, it affords the veteran the security of knowing that his or her records are permanently recorded, she said.

All discharge documents filed with her office are considered confidential and can only be accessed by the veteran or a member of the veteran’s family, Bramhall said.

The photo I.D. is being offered at no cost courtesy of the county clerk’s office.

Additional information about obtaining a Morris County photo I.D. card for military veterans may be obtained by calling the county clerk’s office at 973-285-6161.
