NYS DMV Photo Document "Veteran" Status Designation

If you are a qualified U.S. military veteran, who was honorably discharged, and you have a NYS driver license, learner permit or non-driver photo ID card, you can have the word "Veteran" printed on the upper left hand of your photo document.

There is no additional fee for the veteran status designation on your document, but all regular transaction fees will apply.

To apply for the veteran status designation:

  • You must send or provide proof of an honorable discharge. If you apply by mail, send a photocopy of the proof(s). If you apply at a DMV office, you must show the original proof(s), which will be returned to you. Acceptable proofs are:
  1. a U.S. Department of Defense Form DD-214 that indicates an honorable discharge, or
  2. a form DD-215 that indicates an honorable discharge, or
  3. an Honorable Discharge form WD AGO 53, WD AGO 55, WD AGO 53-55, NAVPERS 553, NAVMC 78PD or NAVCG 553, or
  4. an "Enlisted Separation Paper."
  • You can apply for the veteran status designation when you renew your driver license by mail using your renewal notice (MV-2) and a photocopy of your proof of honorable discharge.
  • You can apply at a DMV office for a renewal or a replacement document with the veteran status designation. Use the Application for Driver License or Non-Driver ID form MV-44.
  • You cannot apply by phone or online.
  • The veteran status will be printed on all of your future NYS DMV photo documents.

Heroes to Hometowns

Welcome to Legiontown, USA
Legiontown is our town. It is your town. It is America’s town. The ‘Legiontown’ designation occurs where Legion family members dedicate themselves to a cause greater than themselves. It occurs every time Legionnaires visit patients in a VA hospital, or pay final respects during a veteran’s funeral. It occurs when a Legion post converts itself into a make-shift shelter after a weather emergency, or when a post sponsors an amateur baseball team that teaches young people sportsmanship. Legiontown members live by the words of Legionnaire and former president John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

Legiontown is The American Legion. In the words of country music artist Michael Peterson: “It’s who we are.” Thousands of Legiontowns are in the United States and overseas. They provide service to troops, young people, communities and veterans. Found here are just some of their stories. Help us make this Legiontown, USA, Web site complete. Please create an account and submit a story and photo of your post, squadron or unit explaining why it deserves to be called a “Legiontown.” Because all articles are subject to review, it may take up to 1 business day for them to appear.
