    As a vet, I'll say your welcome. Don't know if this counts as a good BH tip relating to vets, but can note that I use the VA card (the one used for services at VA hospitals) as an ID these days over the standard drivers/non-drivers ID. For those of us not happy with intrusive, privacy-erasing issues wih the DMV card, the VA card is a decent overall alternative. As a federal card with your picture on it, it's accepted as ID for most purposes, yet it doesn't have your address and date of birth on it, nor has an expiration date.

    A SSN is associated with it (on the magnetic strip) for medical purposes, but this number isn't listed on the card or used for general ID purposes (it's simply physically presented, not digitally processed). And there's no RFID chip in it (or at least not yet). So if you're a vet seeking to reasonably maintian privacy without digital tracking of your every move, I'd recommend you mainly use a VA card for public ID purposes. Happy Veteran's Day!

    Thanks for your service to all who has served!

    Having not served (really wanting to) I know we the free people can take it for granted. But thank you again for all the sacrifices made!
