    I applied for this discount before as discussed one this thread: $40/month Verizon discounts for Veterans, but that failed as it did for some others that tried. The information from their site or their agents was unclear and varied with whom I asked, but they finally decided that the original "new Verizon Plan Unlimited" did not qualify for the full discount for some reason, so we got 15% off of my data plan only, or $16.50/month.

    We just changed our data plan to the new Start plan that came out this week as it's really all we need. We lost Mobile Hotspot, but only one of us was using that, and my granddaughter will just have to live without it. Her parents spoil my grandkids so much anyway that I usually don't even try, and she gets the hottest new iphone every other year.

    So we're saving $60/month on six phones with the new plan, plus $40 - 16.50 = $23.50/month on the better Military discount, and the poor agent I talked with about the changes was so unprepared for my questions he gave me a $30 one-time discount. Ok, thanks! We did lose the $10/month paperless & autopay from Debit card discount we were enjoying as those requirements are built into the newest plans, but oh well.

    So, whatever Verizon plan you are on now, look at the new ones. They have two new $40/month plans (ok $45/month if you have less than five phones) for those who want more than we do, or a $50/$55/month for the geek who has to have the most, mix as you wish for different lines, and I expect that they will qualify for the full Military discount as long as you have three or more phones. If you have not signed up for the Military discount, do so at Military discounts | Verizon Wireless All a Veteran needs is a copy of his DD-214, and those can be ordered online if you've lost yours.
