Letter to the editor


Dear Editor:

I am an 82-year-old veteran who served 20 years in the U.S. Navy. I served my country with pride and often was away from my family for months at a time. Once that period was 14 months.

Today I went to vote and presented my voter’s card and my military ID card. The military ID card has my picture and branch of service on it. The poll worker said the military ID card was not proper identification and wanted my driver’s license which also has my picture on it.

Question: Is this a national procedure or is it another slam towards the military whether retired or active?

I would like some clarification!!
