Clerk’s Office announces the issuance of driver’s license with veteran designation

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Marshall County Clerk Daphne Fagan-Girts announced recently that her office can now issue a specially designated veteran driver license or photo identification card to honorably discharged veterans.

“We are pleased to now be able to offer this designation to any honorably discharged veteran who presents the proper discharge form”, said Girts.

Veterans must visit the Clerk’s office on the first floor of the Court House Annex and present a certified or original copy of their Department of Defense form 214 (DD-214), their discharge papers, to receive the special designation on a driver license or photo ID card. The DD-214 must reflect an honorable discharge.

The standard state issuance or renewal fees apply for the transaction. If it is not time to renew a driver license or photo ID, veterans may get a duplicate to replace a current non-commercial license or ID for $12 for the first duplicate and $16 for a second duplicate.

Girts would also like to remind veterans that they can have their DD-214 recorded at the Register of Deeds office which is next door to her office. Recording the form with the Register gives the veteran easily accessable proof of their honorable discharge in the event that they lose their DD-214.
