Veterans License Now Available

PEARL, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi has issued its first driver's license designed for military veterans.
   
The presentation was made Thursday at a Highway Patrol office in Pearl.
   
Officials say Mississippi is one of 16 states offering a "veteran" designation on driver's licenses and other state-issued documents.
   
There are approximately 200,000 veterans who call Mississippi home.
   
Certification from the Mississippi Veteran's Affairs Board must be presented before the new veteran's license can be obtained.
   
Veterans who wish to obtain the credential in advance of the normal renewal period must pay the associated replacement fees to get the document. Any subsequent documents an enrolled veteran receives from the Department of Public Safety will have the "veteran" designation.
