Letter from County Clerk, Dwight D. Sullivan
Welcome to the Thank A Veteran Program
The Thank A Vet Program was conceived by Dwight D Sullivan, Galveston County Clerk, as a way of giving back to the veterans who have served our country through the armed forces. This program extends to all branches of the military and offers our service men and women an opportunity to receive our thanks through discounts at participating merchants like yours.
Saying “thank you” is easy and completely voluntary with the Thank A Vet Program.
To enroll, merchants should:
- Read, fill out, sign and submit the Merchant Participation Form.
- Email Amy.Carr@co.galveston.tx.us to have the participating merchant Thank A Veteran decal sent out and place in a visible area
- Offer a discount to any veteran who presents the County Clerk-issued Thank A Veteran ID card
The veteran ID card is issued after that veteran files his or her DD-214 Separation papers with the County Clerk’s Office. Both the card and the filing are free of charge to the Veteran. DD-214 papers are non-public records and are filed with our office for safekeeping. These records are viewable ONLY by the veteran and his or her immediate family.
The benefits of participation are rewarding for both merchant and veteran:
- Veterans are shown gratitude for their sacrifices and loyalty to country through a discount at participating merchants
- Merchants are given an opportunity to give back to our veterans
- Participating merchants will be listed on the County Clerk’s website
A brochure that details the program’s purpose and benefits, along with the enrollment form, and merchant decal can be found in the Thank A Vet folder. If you’d like more information about the program, please contact our sponsor coordinator Amy Carr at (409) 766-2347, or by e-mailing her at Amy.Carr@co.galveston.tx.us
Thank you again for helping to give back to those who have served us.
Program Sponsor, Dwight D. Sullivan
