    How about this ideal

    Military personel of the Federal forces, National Guard and State Militias would be authorized a military/veterans DRIVERS license - issued by the US Govt via the Veterans Administration thu the VA Police.
    Veterans would be able to maintain this license provided they have a general or honorable discharge.

    1) The VA would not provide a drivers test. The VA licence would only be issued by turning in a valid State/Commonwealth license.

    2)There would be no charge for this license

    3) The license would be valid for 5 years and renewal would only need an eye test

    4) Purpose:
    a - Military personel would not have to renew a license while stationed outside their HOR
    b - a benefit for honorable service with the military. In addition, Vets would not have to get a new license
    if moving to another State/Commonwealth

    I realize there would be some more wrinkles to iron out, but what do you think of the basic ideal

    Fee free to post some of those wrinkles.

    For what concealed carry? I'm not in favor of licensing for simple ownership and transportation in a vehicle.

    I was referring to a driver's licence - I edited post to include a second time of the use of "drivers"

    Well, FOPA was supposed to take care of that but some states (NJ in particular) seem to have missed the memo.
