Ingham County Clerks unveils new photo ID for veterans

MASON, Mich. (WLNS) – Ingham County clerk Barb Byrum has unveiled a new service for veterans to make it easier to provide proof of their service.

In the past veterans needed to carry their discharge papers to do so.

Those papers are large, can disintegrate over time, can be inconvenient to carry and don’t really fit in a wallet.

But now veterans can get their hands on a new photo ID, the same size as a driver’s license.

“Well, I think it’s offering our veterans the opportunity to be recognized for their service,” said Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum. “The county should recognize their years of service and their hard work defending our nation. It will also offer them the opportunity to obtain discounts easier.”

To get the new card bring your photo ID and discharge papers to the clerk’s office in Mason.

There’s also a $10 fee.
