Veteran ID cards available through county office

El Paso County Veteran Services is now issuing veteran ID cards for veterans who do not have a military retiree or veteran health care ID card.

Veterans can receive a card at no cost by calling 719-520-7750 and setting up an appointment.

“There are so many discounts out there for veterans,” El Paso County Veteran Services Manager Jim Tackett said. “We want to make sure our veterans are able to take advantage of these discounts by showing their veteran ID card. We estimate about 20,000 people in El Paso County could benefit from the cards and each person could possibly save hundreds of dollars a year.”
