BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) Starting May 1st, Alabama veterans will be able to display proof of service on their driver license.
“Now, our veterans may readily show their status to obtain any benefits, rebates and accommodations they richly deserve. I am proud to have played a part, along with Sen. Marc Keahey, in making this happen,” said Rep. Marcel Black, the bill’s author.
By filling out the DD-214 form, vets will be able to show military service on the I.D.
That form, which is provided by the Department of Defense, can be found at any state Department of Public Safety’s Driver License exam office.
It must show either an “honorable” or “general under honorable conditions” status.
While it is a free service for driver license renewals, there’s an $18.50 charge for anyone looking to renew before his or her designated time.
