CT Veterans Can Have Status on Driver's License

Veterans in Connecticut can now apply to have their military status marked on their driver's license or state-issued ID card.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that the Department of Motor Vehicles and AAA offices, starting Jan. 3, will begin issuing the cards with a symbol of the American flag to identify someone's veteran status.

Malloy said the symbol will help provide veterans with a more convenient way to access benefits and services they've earned.

Veterans must submit a completed application and proof of honorable discharge to the state Department of Veterans' Affairs at least 30 days before visiting a DMV or AAA office.

The department will verify the veteran's military status and then electronically notify DMV of the request before the license or ID card is issued.
