South Koreas veterans are now eligible to obtain Guam veteran driver's license plates.
Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero this week signed Sen. Dwayne T.D. San Nicolas’ Bill 82-37, now Public Law 37-28, which applies to South Korean soldiers who fought alongside the U.S. military during the Vietnam War and have acquired U.S. citizenship.
"This is what happens when we collectively work together for the good of the community,” San Nicolas said. “I thank both my Republicans and Democratic colleagues for actually seeing the good in this bill."
San Nicholas said the bill was prompted by sentiments expressed by veteran organizations about the lack of recognition for South Korean veterans.
"This bill and now law will do just that," San Nicolas said,
Public Law 37-28 allows South Korean veterans and Distinguished Flying Cross recipients to qualify for Guam veteran driver license plates; and to allow more documents to be used for veteran qualiﬁcations.
