The city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is within the county of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In other words, there is a county in the state of Pennsylvania named Philadelphia. Within the county of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania there is a city, also named Philadelphia.
When a Veteran of the US Military during WW 2 was discharged, they were handed 6-8 copies of their Discharge Documents (four pages). It was suggested to the Veteran several entities to provide copies of their Discharge Documents to, but only suggested. One location was the Court House of the county that the Veteran would reside in after WW 2. The Veteran "did not have to leave" a copy of their Discharge Documents, but it was encouraged. Please understand, 16 million men and women being discharged, 1945-47 pretty well overloaded the system.
