This is old news but worth repeating: LB93 went into effect
on 7-1-2014. It allows you to renew your driver's license and
have the word "Veteran" imprinted on it (at no extra cost).
You will first need to register with the NE Department of
Veterans Affairs. This can be done at
and then click on the button in the middle of the page
"Veteran Registry". You must register before you go to the
DMV to renew your license. Please share this information
with other veterans because it will allow you receive veteran
discounts at Lowes, Cabelas, and other establishments. If
you would like a paper application, please stop by the
Unadilla Village Office.
