    I didn't get the Veteran label on my DL because I didn't know about the option until after I was at the counter and didn't have my DD214 with me. I figured I'd never really been asked for an ID so I could get any sort of a discount so no big deal, I'll just do it next time.

    I was at Cavenders yesterday picking up a new pair of boots and a couple of shirts. The cashier asked me if I was in the Marines (likely due to my ball cap that said so). Then she said, "can you prove it?"

    Having never been asked that before I just stared at her for a second and said what? She said if you can prove you're a vet I can give you a 10% discount. I renewed my CHL earlier this year and the new LTC is stamped Veteran on it, so I pulled that out and showed it to her and said this says I'm a Vet.

    She didn't even bat an eye. Just looked at it like it was any other form of ID, said that works, and gave me a 10% discount.

    Anyone know of other stores that offer a discount for non-active or non-retired Vets? I kinda like getting those discounts.

    Lowes and Home Depot do the same thing. I just show them my VA card. Helps on big purchases, like when I bought my refrigerator, covered the taxes and then some plus the discount I had already got on it.

    Every store I go to I ask for military discount. You would be surprised on how many stores give it. Twin peaks gives a nice discount to military.
