On Thursday, March 15, Peoria County Recorder of Deeds Nancy K. Horton and Congressman Aaron Schock will speak during a joint press conference to raise awareness of the importance of recording military discharge papers. In addition to Congressman Schock and Nancy Horton, Peoria County’s Veterans Assistance Commission and representatives from each branch of the military will be present.
Discharged or retired military personnel should record their military separation papers or DD-214 in the Recorder of Deeds Office in order to receive the benefits they have earned. By recording their DD-214, veterans are assured this valuable document is kept in a safe place and that certified copies will be readily available when needed. For more information about the press conference or recording military documents, please call the Recorder of Deeds Office at (309) 672-6090.
