The U.S. Congress has approved a bill allowing all veterans in America to receive an official identification card. The bill now goes to President Obama for his signature. The card allows veterans to document their service without carrying around sensitive personal information. A form currently used by many veterans to prove their veteran status contains Social Security numbers and other details that advocates warn could put veterans at risk of identity theft.
