The County Recorder in partnership with Fidlar Technologies is excited to announce a new service for our local Veterans. The Honor Rewards program is a way to thank and acknowledge our nation’s veterans for their sacrifices to our country. With Honor Rewards, Veterans can sign-up at the Recorder's office or online to receive an Honor Rewards card which qualifies them for discounts and incentives at participating businesses in the local community This service is being made available at no cost to the County and its taxpayers.
This service accompanies the St Joseph County Recorder's Office dedication to our Veterans. Our office serves as the State of Indiana's recommended county backup for preserving original military discharge papers (including DD214) at no charge, along with providing free certified copies of previously recorded discharge papers.
Veterans are encouraged to record their DD214 or other forms of discharge papers if they have not already. This reward program has also received the support of the St Joseph County Veteran Services Office.
To sign up all a Veteran needs to do is visit the Honor Rewards Website and fill out the form with details on when they served and with what branch of the armed forces. If an individual prefers to fill out the form in person instead of online they can visit the Recorder's Office during business hours and the staff will assist them.
The service is completely free and once signed up the Veteran can expect to receive their Honor Rewards ID card in the mail in 1-2 weeks.
Local businesses and retailers can participate in the service by contacting the Recorder's office or by using the Business Sign-Up link on the Honor Rewards Website by participating their business name and a hyperlink to their business will be listed on the Honor Rewards website for St Joseph County and they will also regularly mentioned in email blasts to current Honor Rewards members.
In addition, participating businesses will be provided with promotional materials like door stickers and flyers to promote their involvement.
