    Since I needed a new license I went with the real ID. Since I had to bring paperwork to the registry I figured I might as well bring my DD214 and put veteran on my license. Maybe it will get me out of a ticket some day.

    Anyone else do this?

    Yes, 10% discount at the 99 restaurant. Same at some but not all Ace Hardware stores.

    Just applied for my renewal (NH). Did not need DD214 because I gave it to them when I got my Vet plates in 2008. Wanting for my license in mail....

    Yup. I've got it. No idea whether it's gotten me out of a ticket.

    Some of you may not be aware, but if you were awarded the Purple Heart, or the equivalent of a Silver Star or higher, there are no plate or renewal fees in Mass. if you have multiple awards (not OLC's) e.g. PH, SS you can put them on your other vehicles...including motorcycle's

    A simple Veteran's plate however is considered a vanity plate and will cost $100 semi-annually

    I have it on mine, but I think Lowes now wants "to put you in their system" by having you go online and fill out a few forms.
    Not really worth the hassle, or the extra junk mail.

    About 5 minutes extra and no junk mail. I had to buy a washer, dryer and fridge. The $500 savings was worth it. They will combine discounts and also take 10% off sale items.

    It’s your money

    I renovated my entire house over the last few years, it's saved me thousands... but they'll take any proof of service. I suppose having it on your drivers license makes it more convenient.
