Dan Garza of Operation Enduring Gratitude told Karl nearly two years ago about an initiative he had started to get states to recognize Veterans through a drivers license designation. Karl brought this idea back and on 6/20/11 suggested it to the Sedgwick County Veterans Coalition who took it on. Last week the Kansas Senate OK’d the initiative and sent to the governor for signature:
This designation is important as many businesses offer discounts to Veterans, but unless you are retired or have a VA card you probably don’t want to carry around your 214 to prove you are a Veteran. This optional designation on your driver’s license provides that verification.
Is your state one of the few that recognizes Veterans on drivers’ licenses? Go to http://www.op-eg.org/ and find out.
