Veteran Designation On Drivers Licenses and Identification Cards
Iowa veterans can now add a Veteran designation to their drivers license or nonoperator identification cards. PLEASE NOTE, this designation can only be added when the license or identification card is being renewed, or, if you are being issued for the first time. (For example, if you are moving in from out of state.) A link to the required form can be found by clicking here. Your County's Veterans Affairs office will need to complete part of that form before the designation can be added to your drivers license or identification card. The Jones County Veteran Affairs Office can be reached by calling (319) 462-5311 and the Jones County Treasurers Office can be reached at (319) 462-3550.
