In the words of the Daily Republic, “Cheers” to Solano County Veteran Services Officer Ted Puntillo for creating an unofficial ID card for veterans.
Let’s go to the heart of the matter. The various branches of our military issues ID cards to retirees upon retirement. Likewise, they should be responsible, upon discharge, for issuing an official veterans ID to all that serve honorably.
The federal government needs to step up; individual state and county veterans offices should not have to create a local procedure.
