do these discounts apply to active soldiers only or to Vets as well? What is needed to verify your Vet status?
Should always ask if they give a discount. I do have to question the Sears discount - I worked there PT and we never gave a military discount.
Different companies have different proof requirements. My personal experience is they all recognize a "VA" card. You can obtain this from your nearest VA office with a picture ID and your DD214. Hope this helps.
