I went into Lowe’s yesterday with a copy of my DD-214 for their 10% discount.

They told me the policy has changed, and they now only accept either an active military ID or a Veteran ID available through Veteran Affairs. Actually, this is the first I’ve heard of a Veteran’s ID, so now the task is to figure out how to get one.

They did honor the discount this last time however.

Has this occurred to anyone else?

John, I got the same story. I was told it has been changed due to DD214s being forged. Basically it seems that they are looking for a picture id.

I go to Lowe’s and get a 10% discount and show them my VA card and also use it at Riley’s auto parts and anywhere else I mention it and they give me a discount. You can get one by going to a VA Center and registering. I did it at the VA Hospital in Phoenix Arizona. Home Depot used to give a discount to Vets but quit so I along with many many other’s don’t go there anymore.

John, take your DD-214 to the nearest VAhospital and register. They will give you an ID card with your photo.
No cost to you and if you need medical help you will be set up for that aswell.

In Georgia vets get their driver’s license at no cost and it says “VET” on the license.

I don’t know if other states do that but it might be worth checking.
