One quick way is to get a 'V' indicator added to your driver's license. North Dakota implemented this indicator August 1, 2011. To get this in- dicator, visit your local County Veterans Service Officer and bring your DD214 (discharge document), if they don't already have it on file. The CVSO has access to a form that they sign and give to you to take to the Driver's License Division. Present the form when you renew your driver's license and the 'V' indicator will be added that day. If you have over a year or many years before your license is up for renewal, you still can get the indicator. Same process, except it will cost $8.00 to get a dupli- cate license printed. The other quick way to prove you are a military veteran is to bring a copy of your DD214 (discharge document) with you. This method is use- ful if applying for a loan at a bank. VA health care enrollees do receive a card once they are enrolled in the VHA system and continue to use the system. Enrolling in the VA health care system can be challenging, but CVSOs encourage all veterans to apply anyway. Lastly, the federal government approved funding for a national veter- ans ID card back in 2015. They finally rolled out the web site (Vets.Gov) this past year. The system appears to be back up and running for the mo- ment. This method will require youto have a computer with Interact ac- cess, an e-mail, and a smartphone that can take photos and send/receive text messages. You will also need your military discharge paper and a government photo ID. The aforementioned methods are only open to those who served on federalized active military duty. Peacetime, non-federalized National Guardsmen do qualify for membership in the Veterans Service Organi- zation AMVETS ( Any questions, please call the Walsh County Veterans Service Office at 352-5030 or your local CVSO. Thank you for your service.
