    4    (b) The identification card shall contain a distinguishing  number  or
    5  mark and adequate space upon which an anatomical gift, pursuant to arti-

    7  and shall contain such other information and shall  be  issued  in  such
    8  form as the commissioner shall determine; provided, however, every iden-
    9  tification  card  or renewal thereof issued to a person under the age of
   10  twenty-one years shall have prominently imprinted thereon the  statement

   19  herein, contain a distinguishing mark, in such form as the  commissioner
   20  shall  determine,  indicating  that  he  or she is a veteran. Such proof
   21  shall consist of a certificate of release or discharge from active  duty
   22  including  but  not limited to a DD Form 214 or other proof satisfactory
   23  to the commissioner. The commissioner shall not require [fees] ANY ADDI-

   25  persons  requesting  a  veteran  notation  [which is different from fees
   26  otherwise required], AND THE ONLY FEE  AUTHORIZED  FOR  SUCH  A  LICENSE
   27  SHALL  BE  THOSE  FEES AUTHORIZED PURSUANT TO PARAGRAPHS (B), (B-1), (C)
