Logan County is set to become the 19th Ohio county to offer photo identification cards to honorably discharged military veterans. The ID cards become available starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, Logan County Recorder Pat Myers said.

“In Ohio, the county recorder’s office is responsible for maintaining veterans’ military service discharge records,” Mrs. Myers said. “These records are used by veterans to prove their eligibility for certain benefits their military service has earned them.

“Instead of carrying around the paperwork, the veteran will now be able to present a personal ID card.”
