Veteran Status

After being retired from the Army for 14 years I went and had my NYS drivers license stamped Veteran. You show that to different businesses and you get a nice discount. Its amazing that all these NYS Politicians who pushed the businesses to give out discounts to us vets and it is greatly appreciated. But what irks me is that the NYS Parks department wont give us a discount. Go figure. Not even 10% off admission or camping. Oh well, cheers!!

PA now has "VETERAN" on their DLs as well.

Remember that when it comes time to renew.

Interesting - I'm not aware that Texas has such a program. Do you have to produce a DD 214?

B47 and all FROG members and readers who are vets - Here's the link for information by state as to availability of Veteran being placed on your driver's license:

Veterans ID on Driver’s License or ID Cards by State | Military Benefits

The list also includes what proof you need to bring with you.

Thanks to all who served!

OK, but I just wonder what some of the benefits are ( discounts,admission prices,etc) from having "Veteran " on your DL. I know the benefits will vary from state to state,but I don't recall ever seeing a veteran discount sign in any business around here.

In addition, I see in Texas that if you just want "Vetetan" on an unexpired DL,you have to pay the same fee as for renewing your DL.

Yes it allows you to use it as proof for those of us who have been out a while for discounts etc. In Va, they issue a Veteran ID card, and yes you have to pay for it but it was worth it to me. I also look at it as Vets are now being recognized more for their service. With all the wars etc. people are appreciating their military. Awesome gesture
