Veterans will be able to apply online for the card through the VA’s website.

The card is the result of the Veterans Identification Card Act of 2015, which was signed by former President Obama.

The card is different from a Veteran Health Identification Card or a DoD Uniformed Services or retiree ID card.

Veterans wanting more information should contact their state department of motor vehicles or state department of Veterans affairs.
