Northampton County, VA to offer new discount ID cards

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 by Bernie O’Hare Special to the Bethlehem Press in Local News

Northampton County’s Director of Veterans Affairs, Freddie Ramirez, has teamed up with the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce to start a new discount ID program with various participating merchants. This is a benefit that will extend to all former members of the military, including those who served in the Reserves or National Guard.

Any county resident who was discharged honorably or under honorable conditions can ask for a Veterans Affairs Photo Identification Card. This can then be used for discounts or special offers from participating merchants.

If you would like an ID card or have a business interested in participating, contact the Veterans Affairs Office at 610-829-4875 to enroll. All participating businesses will be listed on the county’s Veterans Affairs webpage.

Ramirez said similar programs are in place in Berks and Monroe countyies but not Lehigh County.
