Why is it that a certified DD 214 (military discharge document) plus a V.A. photo ID are not good enough for getting a Oregon state non-drivers ID?

A DD214 does not meet most state or fedreal guidelines as proper identification. The main think to consider is this How Easy Is It To Counterfeit? You can get blank dd-214's online and fill in anything you want. They will come with some raise county clerk seal and docket number prepreinted on it. because of the simple ease of having fake discharge papers, they were removed from the acceptable list years ago.

The VA ID cards are acceptable up to the information availble from them. BUT to fight ID theft, the new cards do not have any personal information but your name and if POW, PH or SC on it. So it can't be used for anything but to verify that the name on the card is the name of the person in the picture.

This is correct. Your social is not generally a valid I.D. .

Yes, this is a "general moving issue"...last time I went to get a new drivers license...I needed my birth certificate, former DL, and my marriage certificate...because all my ID has been in my married name for the last 25 years...but...there was no "verification" that it is my "name"...they were going to put my maiden name on my DL...because I had no documents that verified my last name...Getting a new drivers license in your new state...can be quite a feat. Gather the paperwork now.

I agree. We have checked the Washington state site for details on what we will need. Since we are storing things in our file cabinets for a few weeks, we want to be prepared with the correct documentation without access to our normal files. We have given a lot of thought to what we will need, and how to carry it with us safely.
