COLUMBUS, Ga. —
State Senator Ramsey has stated that there is no evidence that veterans want to see Georgia Senate Bill (SB) 419 revoked.
This is the bill that allows the state to place PTSD on a veteran’s driver’s license.
I am confused that the senator now requires evidence. He did not ask the State Commissioner of Veterans Affairs or any of the chartered veterans’ organizations throughout Georgia for input before submitting SB 419.
The bill was passed without a hearing, at the request of four unidentified veterans who represented only themselves.
If you are a veteran and do not wish to have PTSD placed on your driver’s license, please ask your state senators and representatives to contact Charlie Knox, adjutant, at the American Legion Department of Georgia to find out how Georgia veterans truly feel about NOT having this stamped on their driver’s license. If you prefer, you can email Mr. Knox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failing that call the Georgia Department Headquarters of the VFW at (478) 474-3737, or the DAV at (478) 972-5024. Ask for their adjutant. They’ll give him an ear full.
