Here is what you need to do to make that happen. Please fill out the Veterans application (may be picked up at the Chamber office). Enclose a copy of the veteran’s DD-214 (honorable discharge papers) and include a $50 check. Also, if you would like for their picture to be included on the kiosk, you may scan it in a jpeg format at email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
