Benishek supports bill making it easier for veterans to prove service

WASHINGTON D.C. — Veterans may soon have an easier time identifying themselves, thanks to a bill passed in the House yesterday.

U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek voted in support of H.R. 91, also known as the Veterans I.D. Card Act. The bill would provide veterans with access to a card to verify their service, instead of using the paper form DD–214. When proving they’ve served to employers and other institutions, this would be a more convenient substitute.

The bill passed the house without opposition and is no headed to the President’s desk for signature.
