The Jackson County Recorder’s Office recently announced two programs designed to recognize the sacrifice Jackson County veterans have made to the community this Veterans Day and every day.
The honor rewards program provides an opportunity for local businesses to give back to veterans. Through the program, veterans may sign up to receive a free honor rewards card, which qualifies them for discounts at participating businesses in the community.
“We enjoy visiting with our local veterans in person at the recorder’s office when they come in to enroll in this program,” county Recorder Amanda Lowery said in a news release. “Veterans can also quickly and conveniently sign up online for this program at honorrewards.com. Just click on the Jackson County link to fill out the enrollment form.”
Participating businesses include AES Automotive Equipment Specialist, Anytime Florals and Gifts, A Total Tan, Aaron’s Sales and Lease, Blake’s Place, Big O Tires of Seymour, Bob Poynter Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat, Bob Poynter Ford, Bob Poynter GM, Brewskies Downtown, The Brooklyn Pizza Co., Clegg and Sons’ Sod Farms, Creative Concepts Building and Remodeling, Cortland Diner, Defense Mobile Corp., Hague and Zabel Funeral Homes, The Engraver of Seymour, Jackson County Dental, Jubilee Flowers and Gifts, The Office Center, Orange Leaf, Polley Building Supply, Royalty Companies, Seymour Family Dentistry, Stuckwisch Power Washing, Best Way Disposal and Hoosier Hosers.
Lowery said her office is always looking for more local businesses to participate in the program. Businesses can register to offer discounts to veterans in the program in person at the recorder’s office at the courthouse in Brownstown or by visiting honorrewards.com and clicking on the business signup link. Participating businesses will be listed on the Honor Rewards website for Jackson County, which will be distributed to veterans in the program.
The second way the public can help support veterans at the recorder’s office is through the military records preservation program.
The office serves as the state’s recommended backup for preserving original military discharge papers, including DD214, and other service-related documents. Veterans and their families can have peace of mind that these important papers will never be lost because certified copies will be kept safe in the recorder’s records, Lowery said. To preserve service-related documents, visit the recorder’s office.
Both are free to participating veterans and also operated at no additional cost to Jackson County taxpayers.
