    Veterans ID now available

    MONTPELIER — Vermont veterans can now show their veteran status on their driver’s license or state ID card, state officials said Wednesday.

    Veterans licenses will be available at all six Department of Motor Vehicles branch offices and two mobile units as of today and are free to all veterans upon license renewal. All those interested should register with the Office of Veterans Affairs before applying.

    “My administration is committed to doing everything it can to recognize and celebrate the remarkable sacrifice our veterans have made,” said Gov. Peter Shumlin in a news release. “By adding a veteran designation on driver’s licenses and ID cards to the several veteran-designated license plates currently available, the DMV is further acknowledging the sacrifice of these brave men and women.”

    Motor Vehicles Commissioner Robert Ide said in the release: “The increased visibility that this designation provides our service members will aid in providing all veterans the services and benefits they have so rightfully earned.”

    The feature will provide information to first responders and will help the Office of Veterans Affairs notify veterans of benefits they are eligible to receive.
