HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania military veterans can now have their service noted on state driver’s licenses, offering them a way to demonstrate their status if they don’t have military ID handy.

Gov. Tom Corbett was on hand Tuesday to announce the program that provides veterans with the designation without an additional fee. He says it’ll help veterans receive the recognition they deserve.

Officials say people began to sign up for it on Monday, even before the new program’s formal unveiling.

Supporters say it’ll help identify people as veterans, giving them quicker access to social and legal programs designed for people who served in the military.

To sign up, veterans can go to www.dmv.state.pa.us and click on the American flag icon.

Corbett, who served in the National Guard, received the first veteran-designation driver’s license.
