This bill permits county clerks or registers of deeds and mortgages, as appropriate, to create an identification card for Gold Star Parents. The bill defines Gold Star Parent to mean a parent, legal guardian or other legal custodian, whether of the whole or half blood or by adoption, of a member of the Armed Forces of the United States who died while on active duty for the United States. The cards are designed to help parents of members of the armed forces who lost their lives while on active duty for the United States receive discounts or other courtesies extended to military families. Proof of status may include any or all of the following: (1) a certification from an organization formed for the support of parents of members of the armed forces who lost their lives while on active duty for the United States, that the applicant is the parent, legal guardian or other legal custodian, whether of the whole or half blood or by adoption, of a member of the armed forces who died while on active duty for the United States; (2) the service member's federal DD Form 1300, Report of Casualty, which identifies the member of the armed forces who died while on active duty for the United States; and (3) documentation indicating the applicant's relationship to the service member. The DD Form 1300 and the application will be kept confidential and will not be considered a government record under the open public records act.
