stadelman vetsday flier 2016ROCKFORD -- Military veterans who wish to obtain Illinois drivers' licenses that note their service in the armed forces may obtain the necessary paperwork at a Veteran's Day event offered by State Senator Steve Stadelman.

Veteran's Day Quick Certification

Date: Friday, Nov. 11

Time: 1-4 p.m.

Location: Zeke Giorgi Center Lobby, 200 S. Wyman St.

To receive a driver's license with "VETERAN" appearing below the signature line, veterans must present official certification of their military status when renewing their license or applying for a state ID. Under legislation passed by Stadelman in 2015, veterans who present a driver's license with the designation qualify for discounts on purchases at participating businesses.

Stadelman said the "quick" certification allows veterans to avoid the delay of a mail application or a trip to the Illinois National Guard Armory in Machesney Park. Coffee and cookies are also available at the event.

Two state Veteran Service Officers -- Matthew Taylor and Jessica Parker -- will issue applications. Veterans should bring their DD-214 or NA Form 13038 and consult www.illinois.gov/veterans for additional instructions on completing the process.
