The Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller is once again honoring U.S. military veterans and active-duty personnel during November by offering free passport photos.

This is our fifth year providing the photos for our veterans and military personnel,” said Gary Cooney, Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller. “Our service members sacrifice much for our Country, and this is just one small way we can show our appreciation and gratitude for what they do.”

Since starting the veterans’ appreciation event in 2019, more than 240 veterans have been provided free photos. To be eligible for the free photo, military personnel can present their DD-214, military identification, or have a veteran designation on their driver’s license.

  • Lake County Courthouse, 550 W. Main St., North Wing – Third Floor, Tavares
  • North Lake Branch Office, 902 Avenida Central, The Villages
