Veterans Discount Program
Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces
To help make sure that every veteran's DD form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty) has been recorded and protected, we are offering a free service for all veterans. We have partnered with local businesses to offer discounts to those veterans who present a "Thank you for Your Service" Veteran Photo ID.
For a complete list of offers and partner businesses, view our Veterans Discount Program Business Partners (PDF).
If you are interested in obtaining a "Thank you for Your Service" Veteran Photo ID, please bring your original DD214 (or a certified copy) and a current driver's license or other state-issued photo ID to our office between 8:30 am and 4 pm. Veterans who have already recorded their DD214 in Gaston County only need to bring their current driver's license or other government-issued photo ID.
The Register of Deeds office is located in the Gaston County Courthouse in Gastonia, on the first floor. Free parking - including disability and wounded warrior parking - is now available.
Thank you for your service!
Merchants & Business Partners
We would like to offer Gaston County businesses the opportunity to honor and show appreciation to our veterans by participating in the program. Participation is completely free and, in return, we will advertise your business, here on our website and will provide you a poster that you can display at your business showing your support of our veterans.
Discounts may be a percentage of the sale, a specific dollar amount, or you may wish to offer an incentive gift or gift card to veterans. You may also include any rules or restrictions with what you offer.
It's easy and free to sign up. Download the Merchant Application (PDF) and follow the instructions for submission. Thank you for helping us to honor our veterans for their service to our country!
