The Honorable Bill Keating
297 North Street
Hyannis, MA 02601
The Cape and Islands Veterans Action Committee is requesting that Representative Keating co-sponsor the following bill, HR 2985; Veterans I.D. Card Act.
|Atlantic County, NJ Veteran ID|
This bill would offer veterans a means of providing proof of having served in the armed forces of the United States. Veterans must carry with them their DD214s in order to offer proof of service. The I.D. card would provide a photo, thus, preventing fraud by some individuals. The Veteran’s I.D. Card would be issued by request only.
|WWII ID Card|
A number of businesses offer discounts to veterans. The vast majority of veterans do not carry their DD214s with them resulting in the failure to receive those discounts.
Thank you for your consideration to co-sponsor this legislation.
Richard D. Carey
