WMDT 47 NEWS - Starting tomorrow, Maryland veterans will be eligible to put their military status on their driver's license.    

It's a move that intends to assist those who served in Maryland an easier way to receive benefits. State Sen. Jim Mathias (D-Dist. 38) co-sponsored the bill with Del. Norman H. Conway (D-Dist. 38B) after Worcester and Somerset Co. veterans reached out to him. 

"The Veteran's ID bill demonstrates how citizens and their elected representatives effectively work together," said Sen. Mathias to WMDT.

"Veterans from Worcester and Somerset county reached out to me and explained how important allowing a designation on our Maryland driver's license would be to assist our Maryland veterans in receiving their benefits, both government and private sector, they have justly earned.

"As we celebrate the New Year, the veteran's ID bill is a great way to 'say thanks' to our veteran men and women that have protected the foundation of our freedom and democracy, while keeping us safe. Their service provides the inspiration for those currently serving our country today and insures our freedoms for tomorrow."
