"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.


Veterans Identification Card

     The Veterans Administration has announced that the application process for the national Veterans Identification Card (VIC), is now available for Veterans.

     This has been mandated through legislation since 2015 to honor Veterans, and today's rollout of the VIC card fulfills that overdue promise

    Only those Veterans with honorable service will be able to apply for the VIC card, which will provide proof of military service, and may be accepted by retailers in lieu of the standard DD-214 form to obtain promotional discounts and other services where offered to Veterans.
     "The new Veterans Identification Card provides a safer and more convenient and efficient way for the most Veterans to show proof of military service," said VA Secretary Dr. David J. Shulkin.  "With the card, Veterans with honorable service to our nation will no longer need to carry around their paper DD-214s to obtain Veteran discounts and other services."
     The VIC provides a more portable and secure alternative for those who served the minimum obligated time in service, but did not meet the retirement or medical discharge threshold.  Veterans who served in the armed forces, including the reserve components, and who have a discharge of honorable or general (under honorable conditions) can request a VIC.
     To request a VIC, Veterans must visit, click on "Apply for printed Veteran ID Card" on the bottom left of the page sign in or create an account. 
     Veterans who apply for a card should receive it within 60 days and can check delivery status of their cards at  A digital version of the VIC will be available online by mid-December.
