LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky veterans can now be issued a driver's license that indicates their service to the country.
The word "VETERAN" is printed vertically and in capital letters along the right border of the driver's photo. You can see an example to the right.
"As a veteran myself,I know that service in our nation's military is typically a point of lifelong pride among veterans," Gov. Beshear said in a news release. "And this is one small way in which we can acknowledge the many men and women who have honorably worn the uniform."
A veteran wanting such a designation on the license has to present a DD214, the Department of Defense form that verifies service, at the local circuit court clerk's office, where driver's licenses are issued.
"Many businesses in Kentucky want to offer discounts to veterans, but don't realize that most veterans don't carry identification confirming their veteran status," said Ken Lucas, Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs. "Businesses have been kind enough to accept other documentation, but putting the ‘Veteran' designation on an official state ID greatly simplifies the matter for both veterans and businesses."
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has directed the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to work with circuit court clerks to issue new licenses without charging veterans through the end of the year. Veterans do not have to wait until their next renewal period to get the new version of the license.
