Murray_tim_764Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray announced today that the RMV will offer Massachusetts veterans the option to have the word “Veteran” appear on their driver’s license or ID card, beginning in January 2012.

The veteran designation is designed to increase awareness about available resources and benefits. With this feature, first responders will be alerted of all veterans and the Department of Veterans’ Services will notify veterans of benefits they may not have accessed. There is no cost for the veteran designation, as long as it is added during license renewal time.

"The Registry of Motor Vehicles is excited about the new veteran designation, which is a free service upon license renewal," said MassDOT RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian. "Veterans who have not accessed Department of Veterans' services will find a wide of array of benefits are available."

Governor Deval Patrick last week declared November 2011 as “Hire a Veteran Month,” and the Patrick-Murray Administration announced new initiatives and resources to support the hiring of Massachusetts veterans, while increasing access to additional services. Governor Patrick also launched an Interagency Task Force on Hiring Veterans and directed all Executive Branch agencies to promote the benefits of hiring veterans. Last week’s announcements build on existing partnerships and business collaborations initiated by Lieutenant Governor Murray, chair of the Governor's Advisory Council on Veterans' Services.
