Attention all Veterans --DONT DO THIS!
After seeing the recent reader's warning about using "Veterans" license plates, and your insights on the targeting of veterans, this story jumped right out at me. I work in news (TV production side, not writing), and below is a direct copy & paste from a script in our 6 o'clock show . . .That first line says it all. Why do veterans need to be easier to identify?
IT WILL NOW BE EASIER TO IDENTIFY VETERANS IN OUR STATE.
GOVERNOR NIKKI HALEY AND THE D-M-V...
ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT THERE WILL NOW BE A "VETERAN" DESIGNATION ON DRIVER'S LICENSES, ID CARDS, AND BEGINNERS PERMITS. THE LICENSE WILL FEATURE THE WORD VETERAN BELOW THE PICTURE ID.
YOU HAVE TO HAVE SERVED HONORABLY IN THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES IN ORDER TO OBTAIN THE DESIGNATION. YOU WILL NEED A CERTIFICATE OF RELEASE OR DISCHARGE AS PROOF.
