The internet is an amazing place. I somehow got a hit from someone in the US Air Force who is shipping out soon. His Washington license is expired and he asked me of all folks what to do. Nice to be a geek and help someone who is really in the nation’s service. BTW, if you are interested DOL – Military Designated Driver Licenses tells all about what to do. It’s quite a good program except that you actually have to be in the State of Washington to get this military license and by definition most folks are not.
OTOH, I just read the “statute”:http://www.leg.wa.gov/RCW/index.cfm?fuseaction=section§ion=46.20.027 and it doesn’t say that you have to apply. Just says that the license is valid as long as you are in the service. Go figure.
