    discount at some borgs

    At a recent veterans association meeting, we were told that Lowe's and Home Depot give a 10% discount on all purchases to veterans.
    You do need to show some proof to get the discount.
    I recently made a $35.00 purchase at Lowe's and, sure enuf, got a $3.50 savings. Not a lot, dollar wise, but saving is saving and it adds up.

    Yep, I've taken a copy of my DD214 with me when I wanted to get the discount. Most of the time they don't even look at it.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Good for you guys and for them!!!!!!!!! You folks that served have earned this and more, good on them for stepping up and offering it! It doesn't seem like a lot for an individual, but man think of it nationally. Thanks for your service.

    I have one of those also. But, I had been carrying it since 1963 and it got very dark and yellowed. I now carry my VA hospital ID card.

    I guess I need to go on a quest for mine... I've moved about 10 times in the times since I got out... not sure which box it's packed away in.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
