Letter: Combat vet can't get license renewed


To the editor:

A new law from Boston states that you have to prove who you are to renew your driver's license. I got a bunch of documents together to show who I am and always was. I got a copy of my birth certificate in the town of Adams where I was born.

I went to the Registry of Motor Vehicles with my papers and the clerk turned me down. I explained to her the name "Menard" was French for "Maynard."

So here I am with a bunch of papers to prove who I am but I can't renew my drivers license.

I served on three ships. I was in five campaigns. And I was almost torpedoed off the Philippines. But I can't renew my drivers license! Can anyone out there help me?

Richard J. Maynard,
