Posted: 08/06/2014 - Some veterans can now get a special ID card to give them access to benefits they may be missing out on. The El Paso County Veteran Services will issue ID cards for veterans who do not have a military retiree or veteran health care ID card. The goal is to help vets with the discounts available to them. About 20,000 people in El Paso County could benefit from the cards, potentially saving them hundreds of dollars a year. To receive your card at no cost, call 520-7750 to set up an appointment.
