Town of Southampton Veterans Affairs Committee
Active Military and Veteran Discount Program
Dear Business Owner:
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 Veterans Affairs Committee’s recommendation to create an Active Military and Veteran Discount Card.
The Town of Southampton Active Military and Veteran Discount Card program is an initiative between the Town of Southampton, Veterans Affairs Committee and local merchants to recognize the service and sacrifices made by our veterans. Under the program, active military and veterans discharged under honorable conditions will receive an ID card identifying them. The merchants who participate in the program agree, at their discretion, to accept and honor the card by providing holders with a discount or other benefit on purchases or services (the amount of the discount or benefit will be determined by each merchant).
If you 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. You will also receive a free decal identifying your business as an Active Military and Veteran Discount Program participant. This is a voluntary program that provides a benefit to our service men and women, and potentially increases sales and marketing exposure for the merchant.
We hope that you participate in the Active Military and Veterans 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.

Thank you for your participation,
Councilwoman Julie Lofstad
