Starting next month Michigan veterans will be able to show their service to our country right on their Michigan driver's license and state identification. The Secretary of State's Office says the new license will be available to all honorably discharged Michigan veterans.

The license will have the word "VETERAN" in bold red on the lower part of the front of the card.  Many Michigan retailers now offer discounts to veterans. Officials say this new designation could prompt more businesses to provide them as well.
