Governor Tom Corbett has unveiled a new veteran's designation for Pennsylvania driver's licenses and identification cards.
The designation offers Pennsylvania's nearly one million veterans a way to demonstrate their status if they don't have military ID handy.
Corbett said it'll also help veterans receive the recognition they deserve.
"This designation will allow us as Pennsylvanians to show our veterans how grateful we are on a daily basis, if it's through discounts at restaurants or when they pick up their prescriptions," he said.
To sign up, veterans can go to www.dmv.state.pa.us and click on the American flag icon. There is no additional fee, but veterans will have to pay regular renewal or duplicate fees.
PennDOT has also provided an option for people to help veterans in the state. Pennsylvanians can make a $3 tax-deductible donation to The Veterans' Trust Fund when they apply for or renew their driver's license or photo ID, or renew their vehicle registration.
