What is a Veterans Identification Card or Proof of Service Card and how do you get one?The purpose of the Veterans Identification Card (VIC) is to serve as proof of service in the Armed Forces which can be used to obtain discounts on goods and services offered to Veterans. The VIC does not qualify Veterans for additional benefits administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and does not serve as proof for any benefits to which you may be entitled. Also, the VIC will not grant access to military post or installations.
World War II/Korean War - Skin, muscle, ligament, bone arthritic, neurological, vascular and Reynaud's conditions from cold weather exposure.
If you are a recently discharged  veteran, you are eligible for immediate medical and dental benefits through the VA Health Care System. You have education benefits, home loans, and veterans preference available to you. Minnesota even grants 2 years of special hunting privileges. It is also a good idea to record your DD214 at the County for safekeeping.
