LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska veterans now have the option to display their status on driver's licenses and state identification cards.

The state began allowing the veteran designation on July 1.

The new cards could make it easier for veterans to show that they qualify for special offers and discounts at Nebraska businesses. It also could help law enforcement identify those who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Veterans who want the designation must register with the Nebraska Department of Veterans' Affairs, and request the designation when renewing or applying for a duplicate identification card at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Department of Veterans Affairs director John Hilgert says the state registry has about 4,000 names so far, and officials are adding 90 to 100 per day.
