With May being #NationalMilitaryAppreciationMonth, we thought we would highlight some of the resources within the county available to Veterans, along with a list of the records our office has available to researchers.

The Warren County Recorder, Linda Oda, takes a lot of pride in making sure that her office is helping to support the Veteran population of Warren County. Some of the services they offer for Veterans include:

  • Recording your DD214/NGB22
  • Honor Rewards
  • Honor Rewards Participating Businesses
  • Veteran ID Card
  • Getting your DD214/NGB22

You can access information for these services using this link from the Recorder’s Office Website: Military Information & Rewards

Finally, our office has been working on providing historic resources that involve Warren County Veterans and making them available to the general public for research. To date we have the Recorder’s Office Veteran’s Gravesite Index available to search online, this includes almost 8,000 entries spanning from the mid 1800’s to current date. Our office also houses the Soldiers Relief Commission, Appointments, and Oaths Records along with a volume of Officers Records. The last two record series are not available to search online as of yet, if you would like more information regarding them you can reach out to our office directly.
