TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas residents who served in the military may now get the word “veteran” printed on their state-issued driver’s licenses and photo ID cards.
The Department of Revenue announced this week that the service is available to veterans with an honorable or general discharge or a general discharge under honorable conditions.
To obtain the printing, veterans must provide a copy of their military discharge papers indicating their status, or a letter from the Kansas Veterans Commission.
There is no charge to have the word “veteran” printed beneath the photo on the card.
Veterans may get the designation when they renew their licenses or pay an $8 charge to have a new card issued before it is expired.
