do these discounts apply to active soldiers only or to Vets as well? What is needed to verify your Vet status?
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.
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.
