Oklahoma Driver License - Veteran Logo
47 O.S. Section 6-124
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety would like to remind Oklahoma veterans of the new "Veteran" logo that is available to be placed on the front of qualified veteran's Oklahoma driver license or state identification cards. "Oklahomans have a profound respect and admiration for the men and women who have bravely served our nation. The new veteran designation on state drivers' licenses is a small way in which we can honor their sacrifice and say "thank you" for their service to our state and our nation," Governor Mary Fallin.
"We're pleased to announce that changes in the system, and card will allow Oklahoma veterans to identify themselves right on their license by choosing to have a special veteran's insignia added to the card," said DPS Commissioner and Secretary of Safety and Security, Mike Thompson, who also is a decorated Army soldier. "This option will be available after November 1, 2012 and was implemented as a manner in which to honor the men and women of Oklahoma who have served our country," Thompson said.
Retired General and Secretary of Military and Veteran Affairs, Rita Aragon, said that this will be of an advantage to military veterans who often do not have a Veterans Administration identification card because they do not have a disability. "Oklahoma veterans will now be able to present their Oklahoma driver license or state issued identification card that has the "Veteran" status on the front. Veterans can then present those cards to businesses that honor and provide discounts to military veterans," said Aragon. "This is a point of pride for veterans and Oklahoma's way of saying, "thank you for your service!" said Aragon.
Veterans who choose to have the "Veteran" status on their card will have to show proof of military service by providing:
- A valid Uniformed Services Identity Card;
- A United States Department of Defense Form (DD)214, (DD)215 or a World War II discharge document WD AGO Form or NavPers Form that shows a discharge status of "honorable" or "general under honorable conditions";
- An Oklahoma Army or Air National Guard NGB Form 22;
- A United States Department of Veterans Affairs photo identification card; or
- A United States Uniformed Services DD Form 2 (Retired or Reserve Retired) Identification Card
