The Town of Southampton created the Veterans Affairs Committee to assist the Town in the identification of the needs of our veterans and assist in the coordination of services and programs to benefit our veterans. At the request of Councilwoman Julie Lofstad, the Town of Southampton supported the committee’s recommendation to create an Active Military and Veteran Discount Card Program.
Active Military and Veteran
The Active Military and Veteran Discount Card is an initiative between the Town’s Veterans Affairs Committee and local merchants to recognize the service and sacrifices made by our service men and women. Under the program, veterans discharged under honorable conditions or active members of the military would receive an ID card identifying them. The merchants who participate in the Active Military and Veteran Discount Program agree, in their discretion, to accept and honor the card by providing holders with a discount or benefit on purchases or services (the amount of the discount will be determined by each merchant).
For your convenience, you can obtain your card by mail or in person through the Town Clerk’s office located:
- SOUTHAMPTON OFFICE:
116 Hampton Rd. Southampton, NY
Monday - Friday 9:00am-4:00pm
- HAMPTON BAYS ANNEX:
25 Ponquogue Ave. Hampton Bays, NY
Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:00am-4:00pm
In order to receive your card, you will need to be a Southampton Town Resident, show a copy of your Military ID, DD214 or Veteran status for proof of eligibility. Southampton Town is grateful to you for your sacrifices and this is one way we can all say THANK YOU!
Businesses that decide to participate
For businesses that decide to participate, your business’s name, and information will be distributed to qualifying veterans and members of the military and posted on the Towns website. We will also provide your business with a free window decal to remind customers of your commitment to our servicemen and women.
We hope that you participate in the Active Military and Veteran Discount Program and assist the Town of Southampton in acknowledging and expressing our sincere appreciation and support for the efforts of those who have kept us safe and fought for our freedom. * Merchants determine any discount, service or benefit to be provided under this program, and reserve the right to withdraw from the program at any time.*
