Currently there is no Federal veteran’s ID card. In Wisconsin a veteran can have a “Veteran Identifier” added to his/her driver’s license. To be eligible, your DD-214 must show your discharge as Honorable or General Under Honorable Conditions. You also must have served on Active Duty for 90 days with one day during a designated wartime period, or have served two years during peacetime. Active Duty for training purposes only does not qualify. If you’re enrolled in the Milwaukee VA Medical Center for healthcare, you can get a VA ID card from their ID card office.
Absolutely! There is no need for a Waukesha County veteran to travel to the Milwaukee VA Regional Office to file a claim. We also caution against filing it online yourself. We can provide valuable tips, insight, and follow-up on your claim. There is no charge for any of our services.
There are several ways to apply. You’ll need your most recent tax return and account numbers for any current insurance programs in which you’re already enrolled. It’s also best to review the form they require, the 10-10EZ, which you can find HERE
Possibly. Each VA Medical Center (VAMC) is permitted to make its own policy regarding providing veterans with free glasses and hearing aids. To find out if you can get them for free, you must first be a registered patient with the Milwaukee VAMC. Then make an appointment with your primary care doctor. At the appointment, ask your doctor how to obtain the glasses or hearing aids for free. For hearing aids, explain to your doctor that you’re unable to fully understand his/her medical guidance due to your hearing loss.
