HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii veterans who served in the U.S. military will be able to have that distinction included on their driver’s licenses and state identification cards.

Starting this month, the state Department of Transportation is making veteran designations available on licenses, learner’s permits and state IDs.

Those who served in any uniformed services and received a discharge other than dishonorable are eligible. Applicants must provide proof, such as discharge papers of a verification letter issued by the Veterans Administration.

Veterans whose licenses, permits or IDs aren’t within in the renewal period can add the veteran designation by applying for a duplicate for a fee.

The bill was introduced by Rep. Mark Takai, who says it provides an easy way for veterans to prove their status and help them receive services and discounts.
