MILITARY DISCOUNT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by smokypin » Thu Nov 13, 2008 9:06 am

Last weekend I went to the movie theater and it was 25% off if you show military ID. I showed my veteran ID and they were like sorry but no discount. I started to get mad so a woman that worked there looked at my ID and she gave me the discount.

I can see the difference between a military ID and a veteran ID ... military discount generally applies to active duty military. Some places are pretty liberal and allow a discount for any military ID; reserve, retired, active duty.

Just from a numbers perspective, there are what, 75 - 100 million veterans ... that's a lot of discounts.

All veteran's should be included.....after all, didn't they serve too?? Shouldn't matter if you are currently serving or connected for serving. Maybe they should distiquish between those that actually served in a combat zone versus those that serve stateside.

I've found that most places just don't know the difference between a retired/disabled ID card and an active duty ID card.
Lowes gives vets a 10% discount. They don't advertise it, you have to request it at the checkout.
