Last Updated: 209 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Local veterans will soon have an easier time identifying themselves.
The Kern County Veterans Services Department has created a unique ID card system which may be used as proof of honorable service.
With the new system, the veteran will no longer need to carry a copy of military discharge papers to provide proof of service.
A news conference to unveil the new system will be held Thursday morning at 10 a.m., at the Veterans Service Department on Golden State Avenue.
