“The Saratoga County Clerk’s Office is very thankful for the service of our nation’s veterans. Our F.A.V.O.R. program is a way of showing our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. Veterans who file their original DD-214 with the County Clerk’s Office are eligible to receive our F.A.V.O.R. card, which NOW includes the option to display earned military campaign medals and purple heart designation, along with branch of service.”
– Craig A. Hayner, Saratoga County Clerk
Saratoga County honors a veteran each month at the Deceased Veterans Ceremony, and to date, has honored over 300 veterans. The ceremony has become a tradition here in Saratoga County, and includes participation from elected officials at all levels of government, as well as local veteran organizations and supporters. This event takes place the third Tuesday of every month at 2:30PM at 40 McMaster Street, Ballston Spa, NY and is open to all who wish to attend.
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 and Purple Heart distinctions can now be depicted on our new 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!
