Back in Nov of 2017 the VA authorized the issuance of a Veterans ID Card to all honorably discharged Vets. The response has been overwhelming and caused a back log of applicants. I applied back then and finally received the emailed authorization to complete the application on-line. These cards can be used as your proof of service to take advantage of the various discounts many retailers and businesses now offer Vets.
To start the application visit this website:
Veterans ID Card
You'll need to scan your drivers license (or take a pic of it and download it to your PC) so you can upload it on the site. You'll also need to have a good picture for the card.

If you don't have any type of military ID it would be well worth your time to apply and get one.
It's free and can be done all on-line. I understand one can visit a local VA to get a card too.

Good info.

Here in Alaska, when renewing your driver's license, if you take your DD214 of other proof of honorable discharge in, they will put a US flag symbol on your driver's license. I believe they charge $5 for it.

Other states may have a similar program. I see that California also does. Actually, all states, PR, and DC have the same program.

Looks like they're finally going to ship out the ID cards to those who've applied and were accepted. As far as I know theres no time limit to apply, just be prepared for a long wait.

I just got a notice from va.gov yesterday informing me that my status (on the card request) was changed to "SENT TO PRINTER" so hopefully I should see it in my mail box soon. smile

We took my youngest grandson to the zoo on Tuesday, I whipped out the new card and I got a free admission, thats a $20 discount boys and girls..... Course they got it back in the gift shop LOL.

Thanks for the information fellas. I just applied and when I go to renew my Missouri Drivers License I'll be sure to take my official DD-214 with me so they can imprint the Veteran Designation on the license , too. Learned a lot today because of you guys posts, Thanks!

Just curious - isn't your Legion Membership Card (the new plastic one) as good as a Veteran's ID card?
You won't get one unless you can prove you're a Veteran by showing your Discharge Papers (and that means HONORABLY discharged).

Don't know how ya do it in the States, sorry.......... ohwell

Word is that Feds will be requiring a new and improved form of identification which you will need to get on an airplane or purchase ammo etc. like my state. So...we will soon have several options for drivers licenses here: one for undocumented people, another for joe citizen, a special one for people that want to fly etc etc (requires lots of proof to get) and for a fee you can have VETERAN on the last two. Bottom line, next year I will need a folder of ID proof to renew.
