To be eligible for the RTF discounts, veterans must file their military discharge papers (DD214 form) with the county clerk’s office. They are then issued a Putnam County ID card enabling them to enjoy special discounts offered by local merchants.
“This is a golden opportunity for us to reach more veterans and get them signed up for the F.A.V.O.R program,” Bartolotti said. “We have added our list of vets already signed up for the F.A.V.O.R. program to the list Vinny and Karl compiled. That list goes to planning, so when a veteran does call for a ride, they will know he or she is registered.”
“We want to reach all of our veterans because we want to provide them with all the services they deserve,” Tamagna said. “They served us. Now it is our turn to give back to them.”
