  1. Many county govts. in PA, Allegheny, Berks, York, Montgomery, Bucks have instituted a veterans ID program. Open to anyone with an honorable DD-214, a photo ID is generated which enables the Veteran to obtain 5-10% off at many, many establishments in the program. 24-7-365. The local county level Veterans affair office, which operates in all 60 counties should have more info. On the program. Again these photo ID cards cannot be used to obtain or establish entitlement for VA, Veterans, DOD benefits, nor can they be used in any manner like the retired DD form 2 to establish any other benefit of service.

    Something like this program may exist in your state as well.
