Richland County is among only a couple of dozen in Ohio to now offer ID cards to honorably discharged veterans.

The first cards were presented Thursday afternoon to Veterans Service Commission Director Tony DeLong and members Doug Theaker, Dean Krance, Bill Woodrow, and Larry Corn. County Auditor Pat Dropsey and Emergency Management Director Mike Bailey also got their cards.

 The ID card replaces the DD 214 paper veterans carry to prove they served in the military.

 Distribution of the cards starts Monday, and hundreds of Richland County's 11,000 veterans are expected to flood the office next week. The cost for a veteran ID card is just $1.
