    I could very easily create a Military Veteran badge but how do I know if they are a Veteran, and not just s fraud?

    Not a bad idea dude!

    Yep, for those that have served (and I thank you for your service) I think a special badge is warranted!

    What say you @SMOKIE

    Sadly Mr. Smokie, you have a valid point.

    Even sadder, lot's of Stolen Honor (yes, this is a thing) going around.

    There are posers and they suck. It would be very cool to have a badge for verified military.

    DD-214 or I know my PA drivers license here has veteran marked on it. Not sure what other states have that.

    Currently 50 states offer a veterans designation on state issued drivers licenses or ID cards, and PR

    Not quite sure how you can actually validate that without them providing way more PII than they should.
    While I agree there is certainly too much stolen valor taking place, making them send PII over an unsecure connection to an unsecure destination is a terrible idea.
    Maybe taking their word for it isn't such a bad idea in comparison.
    Sure, someone could lie and claim they are a Veteran but what is the most they are going to gain from it?
    A badge?
    Those that wear them with honor deserve them.
    Those that lie and wear them are disgraceful but should hold back the honest.
    Let's not let the few dishonest prevent those that deserve it from proudly displaying a badge of honor.

    Just my opinion on the topic.

    It is more then just a badge. Special projects, donations, and offerings for Veterans Only we have at times.

    Ok, I can understand not wanting to share any of that with stolen valor individuals however the idea of sending PII over an unsecure path to an unsecure destination is extensively worse.

    Anyone who has been in the military is pretty damn good at talking to someone and knowing if they served as well. There's tons of little shit that people don't know about the military.

    I agree with the driver licensees or even your VA card. I did not go though the paperwork needed for a WI veteran DL. With any ID anything that is not needed can be blacked out.

    There is also a short form DD-214. Blacking out certain info would also be a way. Was hoping that the badge would rid of stolen valor. Not so much as a hey I'm a veteran look at me.
