Military Lawyer: Allen M., Esq., Lawyer replied 4 months ago

There is not presently a Veteran's ID card simply for having completed a term of service.

Veteran's ID's are reserved, at least presently, for those that have retired or that have service connected injuries that require them to have VA access.

Completing a national guard term of service is not a qualifier for a Veteran's ID card. There is a push in the law to allow all veterans some type of ID card, but those do not exist yet.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
