F.A.V.O.R. Program

The well-being of veterans is a priority here in Saratoga County. In a joint effort by county government to honor the service and sacrifice of veterans living in Saratoga County, in 2011, the County Clerk, Board of Supervisors, and Veterans Service Agency created the “F.A.V.O.R.” (Find & Assist Veterans of Record) Veterans Discount Program. Under this exciting program, when honorably discharged veterans file their original discharge papers with the County Clerk’s Office, they receive a picture ID card that they can present to local participating merchants that wish to honor them for their service and sacrifice by providing a discount on purchases of goods and services.



Campaign Medals & Purple Heart Distinctions

Campaign medals and Purple Heart distinctions can be depicted on F.A.V.O.R. cards. To view the full list of campaign medals being offered at this time, click here. If you wish to update your card, please visit our office during our regular business hours!
